SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 60-year-old woman suffered a traumatic brain injury and several other serious injuries when she was struck while crossing a San Diego street by a motorist who fled the scene, authorities said today.

The crash was reported at 11:07 p.m. Friday in the 2000 block of 54th Street, according to San Diego police Officer Robert Heims.

The woman was not in a crosswalk when she crossed the street and was violating posted signs when she was struck by a vehicle that was southbound in the No. 1 southbound lane, Heims said.

Paramedics took the woman to a hospital for treatment of injuries believed life-threatening, he said.

There were no witnesses to the crash and so there was no suspect information, Heims said.
