A hit-and-run at a Mira Mesa intersection left a pedestrian dead Friday morning, San Diego police reported.
The as-yet-unidentified victim was crossing Capricorn Way in a crosswalk about 9:45 a.m. when a black 2004 Nissan Titan struck her as its driver was making a right turn onto the street from Black Mountain Road, according to police.
The woman, thought to be in her 40s, died at the scene.
The involved motorist was gone by the time police and paramedics arrived.
Later in the day, traffic accident investigators located and questioned — but did not immediately arrest — the 31-year-old man who had been driving the pickup truck at the time of the fatality, police said. It was unclear if he will face criminal charges in the case.
