Suspect Flees After Hit-and-run Pedestrian Accident
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (May 27, 2018) — A hit-and-run driver suspected of injuring a pedestrian on 30th Street in North Park Saturday night is being sought by police, according to San Diego News 10.
About 1:30 a.m. last night, the victim reportedly yelled at the suspect to turn his headlights as he drove in the 3800 block of 30th Street.
This encounter led to both of them getting into an argument and then the victim walked away. The 30-year-old man went to cross 30th Street and was struck down by the suspect’s vehicle.
Paramedics rushed the injured man to a hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Later, the suspect’s vehicle was located by police in the 4000 block of Meade Avenue. They are still searching for the suspect who was driving the vehicle.
