SAN DIEGO (April 29, 2017) – A pedestrian was killed after an alleged hit-and-run accident on Normal Street in Hillcrest late Friday night, according to San Diego Union-Tribune and NBC San Diego.

The collision took place at about 11 p.m. near 3950 Normal Street.

As per the article, San Diego police said a homeless man who was sleeping on a sidewalk was struck by a vehicle.

The car involved, a silver Honda Accord, was going south on Normal Street when for an unknown reason it swerved to the right. The Honda then jumped over the curb and ran over the sleeping man.

Meanwhile, the Accord reportedly continued through some bushes and crashed into a vehicle in the DMV parking lot. The driver made a U-turn, turned south on Normal Street, and continued east on University Avenue.

The suspect car which apparently sustained front-end damage in the incident was found by the officials on Saturday. The report did not mention if the motorist was also located. The accident remains under investigation.

Based on the news report, it is evident that the driver of the Honda Accord will be held responsible for causing the tragic incident that led to the death of the man involved. Regardless of their reasons, leaving the area following a crash is a serious crime and is punishable by law, especially if the collision killed another individual.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing are clearly factors, the surviving family of the deceased man will be entitled to a lawsuit against the suspect.
