David Pangilinan Suspect in El Cajon Hit-and-Run Accident

David Pangilinan Suspect in El Cajon Hit-and-Run AccidentDavid Francis Cepeda Pangilinan, 41, Drags Officer Along West Washington Avenue Monday

El Cajon, CA (December 20, 2020) – Authorities issued a warrant to arrest 41-year-old David Francis Cepeda Pangilinan following a hit-and-run collision on West Washington Avenue Monday.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the incident happened on December 14, at about 8:30 a.m.

Earlier reports indicated El Cajon police officers responded to a report of a Volkswagen SUV partially blocking the 100 block of West Washington Avenue.

When the officers arrived at the location, they found the driver and a passenger both sleeping inside the car. Subsequently, the officers woke up the occupants and requested for identification.

Preliminary investigation revealed the driver, later identified as Pangilinan, provided a false name. At some point during the conversation, Pangilinan started the vehicle and put it into gear.

Per local news source, an officer tried to stop Pangilinan from leaving. As a result, the officer ended up partially trapped in the SUV and dragged as the vehicle sped away. Our sources mentioned another vehicle traveling in the area struck the officer hanging from the moving Volkswagen.

During the investigation process, officials found the Volkswagen abandoned near the crash site. On Wednesday, Sheriff’s Department records show a $5 million warrant for the arrest of Pangilinan.

Further investigation on the case is underway.
