The victim of a traumatizing hit-and-run crash is now working to solve the mystery of who was driving the car that hit her. 

Emerald Telebrico said she was on her way to a 7 a.m. yoga class in early October when she was hit at the intersection of Grand Avenue and Fanuel Street in Pacific Beach.

“I got hit, I spun, was disoriented and I landed on my face,” Telebrico said. “I was looking for my teeth, trying to spit them out, and they were gone.”

She said the car that hit her was an orange Mitsubishi Eclipse, and the car, just kept on going.

“It was just a terrible feeling, like, is this really like happening to me?” she said.

Telebrico said she had to crawl to the median in the center of the road and wait for another car to come by and call 911.

She said she filed a police report and that she hopes the driver is found soon, before it happens to anyone else.

“Next time, I don’t know if the next person will be as lucky as I am,” Telebrico said. “I just feel like that person is horrible, where’s your humanity, where’s your morals?”
