Evidence left at a crash scene may help San Diego police track down the driver who ran into a motorcycle and then drove off.
San Diego County Crimestoppers is offering a $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case.
A 33-year-old man was seriously injured in the collision on Wednesday, Jan. 15 around 6 a.m. along Mercy Road near the I-15 overpass.
The motorcyclist was traveling eastbound when a lowered, white Honda Civic ran the red light at the intersection of Scripps Poway Parkway and the I-15 northbound off ramp, officers said.
Items left behind by the driver of a white Honda Civic Hatchback have narrowed the search to model years 2001 to 2004.
The Honda lost a mirror and sustained noticeable damage on the driver’s side, officials said.
Witnesses also described the car as possibly having tinted windows, dark rims and a roof rack.
Officers said the Civic was exiting northbound I-15 at Scripps Poway Parkway moments before the crash.
After the collision, the driver drove back onto northbound I-15.
Anyone with information on the identity or location of the suspect or suspect vehicle can call the San Diego Police Department Traffic Division at (858) 495-7800 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
