Jaime Cardiel dead in hit and run Interstate 8 A man identified as Jaime Cardiel, 45, of Phoenix, was the victim of a deadly hit-and-run Monday evening, April 11, along Interstate 8, per the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The incident took place after his vehicle broke down as he was trying to reach his destination which was the Golden Acorn Casino.

Cardiel exited his vehicle and was walking along side the road prior to being struck by an unknown vehicle on the eastbound freeway shoulder.

The 45-year-old man was discovered by a trucker who notified authorities of a man lying in the middle of the road.

Paramedics arrived and rushed him to a destination where he was going to be airlifted to an emergency room, however, he succumbed to his injuries before that could happen.

Per the article, the driver of the suspected vehicle did not stop and continued on leaving police officials without any leads at this time.
