Pedestrian hit by car in Bay Terraces neighborhood

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A man attempting to dash across a street in the Bay Terraces neighborhood against a red light was struck and severely injured by a teenage motorist Tuesday, a San Diego police officer said.

The victim, who is in his 40s, suffered a serious but non-life-threatening head injury after he was struck by a westbound Ford Fiesta at the intersection of Paradise Valley and Deep Dell roads around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.

The "don’t walk” signal was lit, but the man attempted to cross anyway, he said. The 17-year-old girl behind the wheel of the car was apparently uninjured.
