Pregnant Driver Hurt in Hit-and-Run Crash

Police are investigating if street racing played a factor in the hit-and-run crash that happened just after 11:05 p.m. at Palm Avenue and Division Street

A pregnant driver was injured Wednesday night in a hit-and-run crash in National City and police are still searching for the second motorist involved in the collision.

National City Police Department (NCPD) Sgt. Chris Sullivan said two vehicles collided just after 11:05 p.m. at Palm Avenue and Division Street.

One driver, a pregnant woman, complained of pain following the crash and was transported to UCSD Medical Center. The other driver, however, fled the scene.

Sullivan said that motorist was not immediately located by police. The incident is being investigated as a hit-and-run.

Sullivan said police are looking into the possibility that the driver who fled the scene was street racing but that detail remains under investigation. He said the hit-and-run suspect may have been driving a gold Durango.

The victim’s condition is unknown. No one else was harmed in the hit-and-run.
