SAN DIEGO -- A Coca-Cola delivery driver was injured Tuesday in a hit-and-run crash at a rain-dampened intersection in Mountain View.
The crash at 35th Street and National Avenue occurred shortly after 3 p.m.
The Coca-Cola delivery driver was hit while walking. The vehicle, described as a red Nissan sedan, also struck a fire hydrant before the driver sped off, San Diego police officer Joshua Hodge said.
Medics took the victim to a hospital for treatment of potentially severe trauma, Hodge added.
Police were able to catch up with the driver who was suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol and arrested them.
