Man Dragged by Hit-and-Run Driver in Liberty Station Collision: SDPD

A man walking in the crosswalk was struck and dragged a short distance by an oncoming car in Liberty Station Tuesday. The victim later succumbed to his injuries, San Diego police said. 

The driver who struck the man at Rosecrans and Voltaire streets around 12:30 a.m. fled the scene but called police from home two hours later. That woman has not been arrested but will face felony charges of hit-and-run, police said.

Sgt. Marc Stephens said that the woman was not impaired and drugs or alcohol weren't a factor. Stephens said the driver told police that she fled the scene because she was scared.

A second vehicle hit the pedestrian and dragged him a little further down the roadway, according to Stephens.

"We had a third vehicle that also hit the pedestrian who remained at the scene. That driver actually stayed here and called 911," Stephens said. 

Investigators are still looking for the second vehicle who struck the man and failed to stop. 

The victim has not been identified but was described by police as a man in his 20s or 30s.
