Sheriff's Deputies ID Vehicle of Interest in Encinitas Hit-and-Run

Sheriff’s deputies identified a vehicle of interest in a hit-and-run crash that left a mother of two in critical condition on September 22, and they are asking for the public’s help.

The vehicle is a white 2016 Ford F-150 Platinum Edition pickup truck with a CA license plate 83524A2.

The crash happened around 7:30 p.m. in the 100 block of Encinitas Blvd. The victim was crossing the street when she was hit by a white Ford F-150 pickup truck. Witnesses say the driver stopped and got out and told them she appeared to be okay. Moments later, the man got back into his truck and drove away.

The victim, identified as Ashley Mullins, 33, who was heading home from work at the time of the crash, suffered serious head, spine, pelvis and limb injuries. 

"Malicoiulsy walk away that's where the true tragedy is," Mullins' father Roger told NBC 7. "Finding him is not going to help her, it's not going to change the situation, but it certainly will bring some, at least, peace."

She has been placed in a medically induced coma and also suffered a stroke.

Her family says they don't know how severe the damage is to her brain, she cannot move her eyes and has no movement to her left-hand side.

This investigation is ongoing by the San Diego County Sheriff's North Coastal Station, Traffic Division. Anyone with information about this collision can call the North Coastal Traffic Division at (760) 966-3544.
