SAN DIEGO - Police on Monday are searching for the driver involved in a hit-and-run crash in Hillcrest that left a pedestrian injured.
The crash occurred just after 8:15 p.m. at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and Evans Place. The male pedestrian was transported to Scripps Mercy Hospital to be treated for a broken arm and head trauma.
"I would be surprised if he's alive," said witness Jenelle Davis. "I mean, he couldn't move from what I could see."
Witnesses described the vehicle involved as a brown-colored, early 2000s sedan that was possibly a Toyota with Illinois plates.
"It was completely, very obvious that he knew he hit a person and left, so 100 percent hit-and-run," said Davis.
Police found some debris at the scene and say the car may be badly damaged, possibly with a shattered windshield.
The man who was hit was unconscious when he left the scene. Police say he is in very serious condition.
"Hit-and-run in its complete form, like, completely gone… like, hit this person and deliberately left," said Davis.
Evans Place was temporarily closed in both directions while police conducted their investigation.
