Hit-and-Run Driver Remains at Large
SAN DIEGO (November 4, 2017)- According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, a major injury hit-and-run collision left a woman in serious condition Saturday morning on F Street near Park Boulevard in East Village.
The incident occurred at roughly 4:00 a.m. when the driver of an SUV struck a wheelchair-bound woman as she crossed the road outside of a marked crosswalk.
Instead of stopping and helping the victim, the driver proceeded to flee the scene and still has not been detained as of Wednesday.
The victim, a 47-year-old woman, suffered two broken femurs and a fractured pelvis. Although the injuries are deemed as serious, they are non-life-threatening.
Authorities are currently looking for the hit-and-run suspect as the SUV is believed to have a tinted sunroof and chrome rims. Police officials believe the vehicle likely has noticeable front-end damage.
No further details have been released at this time.

Most traffic accidents which involve a driver who flees the scene can be subjected to serious criminal charges, especially when a particular crash causes serious injuries to another person. Such circumstances are considered as “felony hit-and-run,” leaving the victim a legal right to pursue a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit against the suspect. We hope the hit-and-run suspect will be located and justice will then be served.
