Pedestrian killed in hit-and-run collision on SR 94 in Golden Hill

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A pedestrian was struck and killed early Tuesday morning on state Route 94 in the Golden Hill area in a hit-and-run crash that was slowing the morning commute toward downtown San Diego several hours later, the California Highway Patrol said.

The fatal crash happened about 1:50 a.m. on westbound state Route 94 just east of 30th Street, CHP Officer Tommy Doerr said. Details of the collision were scarce, but CHP officers reported a pedestrian was killed and investigators were searching for the car suspected of hitting that person.

Footage from news crews at the scene showed a yellow tarp covering a body in the fast lane of westbound SR-94. Caltrans said the two left lanes of the highway between Interstate 15 and 30th Street remained blocked as of 5:30 a.m.

Reporters on scene reported the car involved in the hit-and-run was possibly a gray Volkswagen. The suspect car would have significant front-end damage, CHP officers told the station.
