SAN DIEGO - Authorities Wednesday released the name of a 49-year-old San Diego man killed by a hit-and-run driver in National City.
Cris Ringor Dano was fatally struck in the 3000 block of Highland Avenue shortly after 10:30 p.m. Monday, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.
At the time, Dano was pushing pushing a shopping cart across the roadway, National City police Sgt. Mike Harlan said. He died in the back of an ambulance while being taken to a hospital, according to the sergeant.
The motorist who struck Dano was driving a gold or silver vehicle northbound on Highland Avenue, Harlan said, noting the vehicle likely has front-end damage.
"After striking the victim, the suspect vehicle made a U-turn and was last seen heading westbound on state Route 54," he said.
Anyone with information about the hit-and-run was asked to call National City police at (619) 336-4411.
