San Diego, CA–San Diego Crime Stoppers and investigators with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department are seeking the public’s help in finding a driver wanted in connection with a hit-and-run in San Marcos.
It happened on January 5 just after 7 a.m. in the 500 block of Rancho Santa Fe Road and Rue De Valle. An 86-year-old man was crossing eastbound on the roadway when a pickup truck struck him from the side. The victim fell to the ground and was taken to a hospital with a serious head injury.
The driver kept going northbound on Rancho Santa Fe Road. A surveillance camera on Rancho Santa Fe Road and Debra Place captured the pickup truck driving away shortly after the hit-and-run.
Detectives are looking for a black 2010 to 2013 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck with an extended cab. It will have a damaged side mirror on the passenger side as a part came off when the victim was sideswiped.
