DEL MAR–Sheriff’s Department investigators are asking for the public’s help in finding the driver in a hit and run that left a man seriously injured in Del Mar.
The collision occurred around 2 a.m. on November 9 in an alley between 10th Street and 11th Street. The victim was walking southbound when he was struck by a vehicle headed northbound in the alley. The driver did not stop to check on the victim before speeding off.
