    Watch: Vigil Held for Hit-and-Run Victim

    Police are still searching for the driver involved in the deadly hit and run crash.

    Investigators believe the truck is a four-wheel drive vehicle. However, because the contact between the vehicle and the victim was slight there may be no damage to the vehicle. Officers said no identifiable parts from the suspect vehicle were left at the scene.

    Witnesses said there was a passenger in the truck at the time of the collision.

    Anyone with information can call San Diego County Crimestoppers at (888) 580-8477.
