An elderly pedestrian was killed on a Genesee Avenue on-ramp to state Route 163, and California Highway Patrol officers today sought the public’s help to find the hit-and-run driver.
The pedestrian was struck and killed about 9:45 p.m. Friday on the southbound freeway onramp, according to a CHP report. His name was not released pending next of kin notification.
The driver sped away from the dying man and has yet to be identified, the CHP said.
However, physical evidence from the suspect vehicle was found at the scene and CHP officials continued to investigate, authorities said.
The CHP asked anyone with information on the suspect or vehicle to contact a San Diego Area CHP Office.
