PACIFIC BEACH (KUSI) — San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the San Diego Police Department’s Traffic Division are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating an unknown suspect who struck three pedestrians with a vehicle in the Pacific Beach area.
On August 5, at approximately 1:09 a.m., a silver four-door sedan was driving eastbound on 900 Garnet Avenue when the vehicle struck three pedestrians who were crossing the roadway. The vehicle fled the scene and drove eastbound on Garnet Avenue.
All three pedestrians who were struck were adult males and were all hospitalized. The males have various injuries including lacerations, fractures, and brain injuries.
Investigators believe, based on evidence collected from the scene, that the vehicle is a newer model silver four-door Hyundai Elantra. The vehicle appears to have stock brushed aluminum wheels and there are no other unusual markings on the vehicle. The vehicle may have damage to its front end area including the grill, hood, and windshield.
When this incident occurred, the area was heavily populated with people and investigators are asking any witnesses to come forward with information.
