San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the San Diego Police Department’s Traffic Division are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating the driver who struck and severely injured a 64-year-old male pedestrian in the Ocean Beach area of San Diego.
On September 6, 2019, at approximately 10:00 p.m., an adult male was walking his bicycle northbound in the bicycle lane of the 4000 block of Nimitz Boulevard, in San Diego. An unknown suspect, who was driving a newer model Nissan Versa Note (hatchback), made an unsafe movement to the right and struck the male victim. The suspect did not stop to check on the victim or leave any contact information and fled the scene immediately.
The victim sustained multiple injuries and was transported to a local hospital for medical treatment. The victim’s injuries include fractures to his pelvis, multiple ribs, fibula, and foot. The victim also suffered multiple lacerations to his body and injuries to his bladder and liver. The victim is expected to survive his injuries, but remains hospitalized.
Investigators from the San Diego Police Department’s Traffic Investigation Unit responded to the scene. Based on their investigation, they believe the suspect’s vehicle is a 2015-2018 Nissan Versa Note (hatchback), white in color, without a sunroof. The vehicle should have damage to the passenger side front headlight, fender, and side view mirror. Investigators are also asking if any collision damage repair shops did work recently to the described vehicle to please contact them.
