Police seeking driver who hit toddler in La Mesa

Posted: Updated:

LA MESA (CNS) - Police asked for the public's help Thursday to identify and locate a driver who failed to stop after striking a 27-month-old boy in La Mesa.

The child sustained head and spinal injuries when he was struck about 7:50 p.m. Aug. 25 in the 8600 block of Fletcher Parkway, near Trolley Court, police said.

The vehicle which hit the boy was believed to be a white 2006- to 2011-model Volkswagen Passat wagon with a luggage rack on top, police said. There may be damage to the left front bumper area, according to investigators.

The boy's parents were home at the time of the crash, according to La Mesa police Sgt. Bret Richards, but the toddler apparently slipped out of the house without their knowledge.

Police described the child's injuries as non-life-threatening.

La Mesa police asked anyone with information about the crash to call them at (619) 667-1400, or contact Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
