Traffic Division Investigators Asking for Public’s Assistance in Locating Hit & Run Driver
Received a VM from the Detective and the vehicle is in custody found through a Fox 5 viewer who called in an anonymous tip. Good work by SDPD, Fox 5 as well as the anonymous tipster.
The investigation is still ongoing as to the operator of the vehicle.
Police have identified the vehicle that struck the victim as a dark metallic blue 2005 to 2009 Buick LaCrosse. The car left its passenger side mirror at the scene (photo below) and will most likely have damage to the passenger side front bumper, hood and fender.
