San Diego, CA (September 27, 2023) – San Diego Police officers seek the public’s help to identify the suspect in a hit-and-run collision last week that killed a pedestrian.
The crash happened Friday at about 8:30 p.m. on the 5700 block of Division Street in the Alta Vista neighborhood, SDPD said.
The pedestrian, described as a 42-year-old woman, was pushing a shopping cart in the street along the right shoulder of eastbound lanes when a vehicle traveling in the same direction hit her. The driver then fled the scene.
After a preliminary investigation, officers were able to narrow down a vehicle description from witness accounts, surveillance video, and other evidence collected at the scene.
Investigators believe the suspect vehicle is a 2011 to 2015 Chevrolet Cruze. Authorities are asking anyone with information that could help identify the suspect or their vehicle to call the SDPD Traffic Division
