Woman Struck, Injured in Crash in Casa de Oro Area of San Diego County
EAST COUNTY, Calif. (June 10, 2021) — A Casa de Oro pedestrian accident early Thursday involved a hit-and-run motorist at Kenwood and Kenora drives.
The California Highway Patrol is now searching for the driver who struck the woman and fled the scene, according to the San Diego Union Tribune.
The crash left the woman seriously injured just before 1 a.m., said the CHP.
Emergency 911 dispatchers received a call from a motorist who saw a pedestrian walking in the middle of a street and acting erratically. Initially, police officers arrived at the scene, but were unable to locate the person.
Soon afterwards, another caller told operators they saw a person lying on the ground suffering from injuries that may have been due to a collision. Police found the woman with non life-threatening injuries such as broken bones. Paramedics transported her by ambulance to a hospital for treatment.
Meanwhile, there are no witnesses to the collision and no suspect description. Police will check with local business owners to find out if any surveillance cameras filmed the collision.
