A driver crashed their vehicle into a palm tree and some bushes in Pacific Beach on Sunday evening. The driver then ran away from the wreck.
The collision happened at about 8:20 p.m. on La Jolla Boulevard just west of Mission Boulevard.
Bystanders told medic crews responding to the crash that the driver took off on foot after driving the vehicle into the foliage.
San Diego police were called to the scene to tow the vehicle and investigate whether drugs or alcohol were involved.
A San Diego Police Department watch commander said the driver would be easy to track down via the license plate on the car left behind at the crash.
