Family Pleads For Hit-and-Run Driver to Come Forward

The family of a 48-year-old San Diego killed in a hit and run last week is pleading for the driver responsible to come forward.

Glenn Tanida was dragged several hundred feet in the collision on Sept. 30 in the 7000 block of Appian Drive in Bay Terraces.

Investigators seized a vehicle of interest – a plum-colored semi truck -- to perform evidence testing on in connection to the hit and run.

Tanida’s brother, Andy, is calling for the driver to identify himself and come forward to police.

The family who called police said they noticed something fishy about the semi truck, which they had seen numerous times before.

“It looks like it was painted and he moved down his labeling, like he moved it down on the cab,” said a family member who did not wish to be identified.

The family member also said that blood matter, tissue and a T-shirt was found underneath the cab of the truck.

Investigators have not yet made any arrests in the case, though they say they have talked to the owner.

It could take weeks for the crime lab to process the crime scene evidence.
