Officials have identified the man struck and killed by a vehicle along Highland Avenue late Monday but they have not arrested the driver who failed to stop.

Cris Ringor Dano, 49, of San Diego was pushing a shopping cart across the road when he was struck by an oncoming car.

The collision happened around 10:30 p.m. Monday on Highland Avenue near East 30th Street.

Dano died while emergency personnel were transporting to a nearby hospital, police said.

After the crash, officers said the car that struck Dano made a U-turn and headed southbound on Highland.

Investigators believe it’s a gold or silver vehicle with front-end damage, last seen driving westbound on State Route 54.

NCPD says the investigation is continuing, and they will be checking nearby businesses for surveillance video.

Anyone with information about the accident can call National City PD at 619-336-4411 ext. 0.
