Update, 3:45 p.m. April 24, 2014, with more information on investigation.
An apparent hit-and-run victim was found unconscious in a driveway in San Carlos Thursday, and later died at a hospital, authorities reported.
A neighbor spotted the 51-year-old man unconscious on his driveway in the 8000 block of Beaver Lake Drive shortly after 5 a.m., according to San Diego police.
Medics took him to Sharp Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead in the late morning, SDPD public-affairs Lt. Kevin Mayer said. The victim’s name was withheld pending family notification.
He was found with severe head injuries.
Patrol officers called in traffic investigators, who concluded that the man evidently had been hit by a vehicle, SDPD public-affairs Officer Matt Tortorella said.
Detectives were not ruling out the possibility that the victim had been hit somewhere else in the neighborhood and managed to make his way back to his home before collapsing, Mayer said.
