A pedestrian hit by a car nearly a month ago in Mira Mesa remained in a rehabilitation facility Thursday after suffering fractures to his skull, pelvis and left leg, and police Thursday were seeking public help to find the hit-and-run driver who caused his injuries.
The crash occurred about 8 p.m. on Aug. 19 in the 8200 block of New Salem Street when a black, two-door vehicle failed to yield to the pedestrian, struck him and fled the scene, said Sgt. Victoria Houseman of the San Diego Police Department’s traffic division. The car was last seen southbound on Camino Ruiz.
The pedestrian, identified only as a man in his 40s or 50s, was seriously injured in the crash, SDPD officer Robert Heims said at the time.
“The victim is still recovering from his injuries and is in a rehabilitation facility,” Houseman said Thursday.
The suspect vehicle in the hit-and-run crash was described as a “domestic,” black two-door car with possible minor front end damage, Houseman said. No description of the driver was available.
The SDPD and San Diego County Crime Stoppers are offering a $1,000 reward to anyone with information that leads to an arrest in the case. Anyone with information can call the SDPD traffic division at (858) 495-7808, San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477, or contact the agency online at sdcrimestoppers.org.
Tipsters may remain anonymous.
