Pedestrian's Leg Severed in Logan Heights Hit and Run

Highway Patrol investigators are searching for the driver who hit a pedestrian in Logan Heights Thursday morning causing major injuries, including a severed leg.

The pedestrian was crossing the southbound Interstate 5 onramp from Boston Avenue in an unmarked crosswalk at around 7 a.m. when she was struck, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) said.

The victim, a 57-year-old female, was pulled under the truck and dragged, and had her right leg severed. She was transported to the UCSD Medical Center.

Investigators don't have a license plate number for the truck, but the victim described it as a lifted, white Chevy pickup truck and described the driver as a male in his 50s with black and gray hair wearing a safety vest.

Anyone with information about the collision is asked to call the San Diego CHP Office at (619) 220-5492.
