Officers Respond to Federal Boulevard Hit-and-Run Crash
San Diego, CA (January 14, 2022) – On Thursday, a passenger sustained injuries in a Federal Boulevard hit-and-run crash.
The traffic collision happened at 4:36 a.m. in the 6000 block area.
Investigating officers said a man was riding in a 2018 Honda Accord.
Suddenly, the car’s driver crashed into parked cars and fled the scene on foot. The passenger was left in the car, where the authorities found him unresponsive.
Right away, the emergency team rushed the man to a local hospital in stable condition with minor injuries.
Meanwhile, it is unclear if the man was cooperating with the authorities in their search for the driver.
Since you cannot read the intention of the driver in front of you, don’t tailgate. Maintain some distance between your vehicle and the one ahead in order to give yourself enough response time should the vehicle ahead make a sudden turn or stop.
