Injured Woman Found in Brush Next to Hollister Street
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (June 8, 2018) — A pedestrian injured in a hit-and-run crash was found in the brush next to Hollister Street roughly five hours after she was struck by a driver, according to the San Diego Union Tribune.
The collision took place about 2 a.m., but the woman was found by a passerby who was walking to work at about 7:15 a.m. this morning.
The woman was knocked over a guardrail and landed in some tall weeds several feet below near the Otay River, the report said.
Paramedics responded to the scene and took the woman to a hospital where she was treated for a broken arm, a bruised lung and scrapes suffered in the collision.
There is no description of the suspect’s vehicle at this time, but an investigation is underway. Police closed down Hollister Street, just south of Main Street in Chula Vista to look for evidence.
