ESCONDIDO (CNS) - Authorities asked the public Tuesday for help in identifying a motorist involved in a hit-and-run crash that killed a pedestrian on a North County road.
Carlos Gomez, 67, was crossing the 1000 block of Lincoln Avenue in Escondido with family members when a westbound vehicle struck him about 1:30 a.m. Sunday. The driver then fled the area, Lt. Tom Albergo said.
Gomez, an Escondido resident, was taken to Palomar Medical Center, where he died about two hours after arrival.
Investigators believe the vehicle that struck him was a gray or white Toyota 4Runner with chrome strips around its wheel wells, possibly an early to mid-1990s model, Albergo said.
Anyone with information about the crash was asked to call the Escondido Police Department at (760) 839-4722.
