A pedestrian was fatally struck by a hit-and-run driver Tuesday morning in a parking lot in downtown San Diego’s Core-Columbia neighborhood, police said.
It happened around 4:35 a.m. in a parking lot near the intersection of Eighth Avenue and B Street, San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros said.
A pickup, described as a black Ford F-150 with a flatbed, struck and dragged the victim across the parking lot, then the truck’s driver fled in an unknown direction, Delimitros said.
The victim, a man believed to be in his 30s, was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the officer said.
Anyone with information about the crash or the whereabouts of the suspect vehicle is asked to call SDPD’s traffic division at 858-495-7807 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. Tipsters can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
