Santee, CA – Two Women Injured Following Pedestrian Hit-and-Run
Santee, CA (August 31, 2018) – Two women received serious injuries following a pedestrian hit-and-run accident that took place last night on Molino Road near El Nopal involving one driver.
The collision happened around 8:00 p.m. San Diego police officials quickly came to the scene of the accident to investigate.
One witness said that three young men in their early 20s were getting into an argument with another resident in the area. They then took off in a Honda vehicle, speeding all the way.
The vehicle veered over to the right, which caused it to jump a curb. This is when it struck two women who had been walking on the sidewalk in the area of Molino Road. The victims sustained significant injuries and were taken to the hospital by ambulance. They have both been listed in serious condition.
The Honda sped off, which was then spotted in another neighborhood by police. Authorities confirmed that a 16-year-old teen owned the vehicle and he was later arrested. Two accomplices have not yet been caught by police but police have their identities.
They continue to investigate at this time.
