May 31, 2017 (Lakeside) – California Highway Patrol’s El Cajon office is seeking witnesses to help find two drivers who fled the scene after striking and seriously injuring a 29-year-old woman who was standing in traffic lanes.
Around 4:45 a.m. Monday morning on westbound I-8 just west of Lake Jennings Park Road in Lakeside, the San Diego woman was struck by an unknown vehicle that knocked her to the ground. Then a black Ford diesel truck, either an F-250 or 350, struck the woman again, causing major life-threatening injuries. Both drivers failed to stop.
The victim was transported to Sharp Memorial Hospital.
CHP is also seeking the driver of an off-white Bounder motorhome with a black single-axle trailer carrying a white off-road vehicle.
