SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Police Saturday investigated a hit-and-run crash in San Diego's Midway District that left a pedestrian with serious injuries and a driver facing possible felony charges.
The crash was reported around 8:16 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Midway Drive and Rosecrans Street, said San Diego Officer David Stafford.
A man in his 40s was on foot, crossing the street in the 2700 block of Midway when he was struck by a northbound 2004 Honda, Stafford said.
The driver of the Honda, a man in his 30s, pulled over and dropped a passenger off, then drove to a store parking lot and dropped more passengers off before driving home, Stafford said.
Officers found him at his residence and arrested him on suspicion of felony DUI and hit-and-run, Stafford said.
The victim was taken to a hospital with a severely injured finger and serious leg injuries, he said.
