STOCKTON, Calif. (Feb. 12, 2019) — A 27-year-old Stockton man was critically injured in a pedestrian accident on Feb. 8, now police are searching for the suspected hit-and-run driver who fled the scene.
The crash took place about 7:28 p.m. on Feb. 8th as the pedestrian was walking in a southbound direction across W Alpine Avenue in a marked crosswalk. When he got to the western edge of the intersection with Franklin Avenue, the suspect’s vehicle was traveling westbound on Alpine Avenue and struck him in the No. 1 lane. The pedestrian was thrown into the roadway and suffered major injuries. Meanwhile, the driver fled the scene and continued driving westbound on W Alpine Avenue.
