SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A 47-year-old man who was buckling his child in a car seat was hit by a vehicle and seriously injured in a Food 4 Less parking lot in the El Cerrito area on Sunday, San Diego police said.

The incident happened around 3 p.m. in the parking lot of the grocery store on University Avenue west of College Avenue. The driver didn’t stop after the crash, police said.
