Police investigate three fatal hit and run crashes in San Diego County
Three pedestrians were killed in three separate hit and run accidents in San Diego County, California – one in National City, one in City Heights, and finally north of Oceanside – on the Sunday night of December 28, NBC San Diego reported.
According to a police report, a white, older model pickup truck struck a pedestrian walking across the crosswalk on Plaza Boulevard near Highland Avenue in National City at around 6:30 p.m.
Police described the truck as a Nissan or a Toyota that probably incurred front-end damage on the passenger side. The pedestrian victim was 75-year-old Armando Guerrero.
At around the same time, a 23-year-old man perished after being hit by a dark-colored Lincoln Navigator in City Heights.
Near Camp Pendleton, a 24-year-old man attempted to run across the street, and he was hit by multiple vehicles. The first to make contact was a mid-size pickup truck that quickly fled the scene.
Police are conducting ongoing investigations into these instances in hopes of recovering the perpetrators.
