Couple Crossing Street Hit By Car in Chollas View

A husband and wife were left unresponsive in the street in Chollas View Monday night after they were hit by a car.

The San Diego Police Department said a man and a woman were found about 100 feet from each other along 47th Street near Market Avenue.

The sister of one of the victims said the couple was crossing the street with their children when they were hit. The parents told their kids to run to avoid being hit by the car but could not get out of the way themselves, the family member said.

The mother, 34, suffered serious injuries to her head and body and her husband, 36, suffered a broken leg.

The driver of the car stayed at the scene.

47th Street was closed at Hartley and Market streets and was expected to reopen before midnight, SDPD said.

Editor's note: The San Diego Police Department originally said the collision was a hit-and-run but later confirmed the driver involved did not flee the scene.
