Hit-and-Run Crash in Old Town Sends Woman to Hospital with Life-Threatening Injuries

San Diego Police Search for Driver of Gold-Tan Ford F-350 Crew Cab Truck Involved in the Incident.

The San Diego Police Department reported on Monday that a hit-and-run crash in Old Town resulted in a 29-year-old woman being hospitalized with life-threatening injuries. 

The incident occurred around 6:15 p.m. on Sunday when the victim was walking on a sidewalk with another woman near 4000 Harney St. According to the police, a 30-year-old man driving a gold-tan Ford F-350 crew cab truck pulled up to let the women in.

While one of the women got into the truck, the driver kept moving forward and stopping the vehicle as the 29-year-old was trying to get in. The victim fell to the street while attempting to get in, and the truck ran over her. 

The driver then fled the scene, leaving the victim with severe injuries, including an 8-by-6-inch abrasion to her left thigh and a laceration to the left side of her head, which severed the temporal artery, making her injuries life-threatening.

The police stated that it was unclear whether the driver knew the women involved in the incident. The SDPD’s Traffic Division is currently investigating the case and searching for the driver of the gold-tan Ford F-350 crew cab truck.
