SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Police are looking for one of two drivers who hit and critically injured a man in Old Town.
The hit-and-run happened around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday on the 4700 block of Pacific Highway near Taylor Street.
Police say a man in his 20s was reportedly walking in the road when he was hit by a woman driving a small car. As she pulled over to call for help, a black full-sized van ran over the victim. That driver briefly stopped and then took off.
Right now police do not believe alcohol or speed were involved.
"This is a fairly dark industrial area. There aren't many street lights, and I believe if my memory serves me correctly the speed limit is 45 miles and hour obviously if some one is going 45 miles an hour it would be very east to miss a pedestrian in the roadway," explained Lieutenant David Rohowits with the San Diego Police Department.
The injured man was taken to a trauma center in critical condition with head injuries and a broken leg.
