SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities asked the public for help Wednesday in identifying and locating a motorist involved in a Pacific Beach-area hit-and-run crash that left three pedestrians injured.
The victims were crossing the street in the 900 block of Garnet Avenue when a silver sedan hit them shortly after 1 a.m. on Aug. 5. The driver continued on to the east and fled the area.
The three men hit by the car were hospitalized for treatment of various injuries, including cuts, bone fractures and brain trauma, according to San Diego police.
Investigators determined that the victims had gotten into a dispute with an unidentified man and woman just prior to the crash.
A surveillance camera captured images of the couple, who are considered potential suspects in the case, and the involved vehicle, believed to be a late-model four-door Hyundai Elantra with brushed-aluminum wheels.
Anyone with information was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
