Santee, CA – Fatal Hit-and-Run Kills Pedestrian Early Saturday

Santee fatal pedestrian accidentSantee, CA (August 12, 2018) – A person was killed in a hit-and-run early Saturday in San Diego.  The pedestrian was walking on Prospect Avenue, near Tumbleweed Terrace just after midnight.   At that time, the pedestrian was struck by an oncoming vehicle.   There is no detailed description of the vehicle. However, it is believed to be black in color.  The vehicle was last seen traveling west in the 10600 block of Prospect Avenue.

The injured pedestrian was discovered lying in the middle of the roadway.  Lifesaving efforts were made but were ultimately unsuccessful, and officials with the Santee Fire Department pronounced the female pedestrian dead at the scene.

The black vehicle fled the scene before police could arrive.  Officers are on the lookout for a vehicle missing its driver’s side mirror with damage to its left front quarter panel.   The investigation is still ongoing.

Hit and Run Accidents in California

Our thoughts are with the deceased pedestrian’s family in this tragic accident.

All drivers have a duty to stop at the scene of a crash.  When the driver knows that a person is injured, there is also a duty to remain on the scene and provide aid to the injured victim.  Fleeing the scene of an injury accident is a felony and carries serious criminal and civil liability.

If you have been injured by a hit and run driver, you need an attorney who is willing to fight for you.   These cases are difficult and complicated and require an attorney with the experience and tenacity needed to obtain positive results.
