Pedestrian Seriously Injured in Hit-and-Run

The driver apparently later had a change of heart

A pedestrian was seriously injured by a hit-and-run driver – who later had a change of heart – in Point Loma Friday night.

According to San Diego Police, the 49-year-old pedestrian crossed Rosecrans Ave. near Hugo St. around 8:40 p.m. when he was hit by a 1997 Lexus driven by a 30-year-old man.

The driver fled the scene, leaving the pedestrian with two open fractures on his leg.

However, police said the hit-and-run driver eventually returned to the scene.

The victim -- who investigators said was under the influence of alcohol -- was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

It's unclear if the driver will face any charges.
