Police are looking for a hit-and-run driver that severely injured a woman in a collision after a short pursuit in Linda Vista on Wednesday night.

The incident started shortly after 10 p.m. when San Diego police attempted to pull over an Infinity G37a traffic violation, but the car failed to yield and police gave chase, Officer Robert Heims said.

The Inifity, which was traveling southbound on Ulric Street, then ran a red light at Tait Street and hit an Acura RDX SUV that was turning onto westbound Tait Street from Ulric Street, he said.

The 73-year-old driver of the Acura suffered several injuries to her legs, arms and head, Heims said. She was transported to an area hospital. Her injuries were not life-threatening, he said.

The Infinity fled the scene and officers were unable to locate the driver.

The San Diego Police Traffic Division is investigating, Heims said.
