Police Search for Suspect Who Fled Head-on Crash



    San Diego police are on the hunt for a man who they say left the scene of a head-on crash that left a woman hurt. NBC 7's Omari Fleming reports. (Published Tuesday, July 8, 2014)

    Police are seeking one of two men responsible for a head-on crash that sent a woman to the hospital near the San Diego side of the Coronado Bridge.

    The crash happened around 9:30 p.m. on Logan Avenue. Witnesses initially reported to firefighters that a vehicle flew off the bridge onto the road, but police later found the claims were unfounded. 

    Instead, San Diego Police say the men in a Ford Explorer collided head-on with a woman in a Dodge Neon.

    Both men took off running. California Highway Patrol officers caught one of them crossing Interstate 5, but the other is still at large. 

    The woman in the car was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center and is expected to survive her injuries.
