Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – A 27-year-old man is in the hospital with severe head injuries involving a hit and run in Talmadge Wednesday night.

San Diego police say around 8:30 p.m. a 43-year-old woman was driving west in the 5000 block of El Cajon Boulevard when she hit the victim walking across the street in an unmarked crosswalk near 50th Street.

Police say the man was thrown on the hood of the car damaging the windshield. The woman kept driving and turned on Winona Avenue, hitting other cars and stopped when she got a flat tire.

Investigators caught up with the driver on Winona Avenue who told officers her gold Toyota Corolla was damaged from an accident in November and did not report that accident.

Police arrested the driver for hit and run. The victim was transported to Scripps Mercy Hospital for multiple head injuries which are considered life-threatening.

Officers do not suspect alcohol or drugs are a factor in the crash.
