February 19, 2010 – A woman on her way to work in Chollas View was fatally struck by a blue station wagon in a hit-and-run accident early Friday, police said.
The crash near Market and Euclid streets occurred around 2:15 a.m., according to the San Diego Police Department.
The woman, who was in her 30s and worked for a catering truck company, had just parked her vehicle and exited it when the station wagon struck her, police said.
At least two people witnessed the accident, said Ken Hubbs of the San Diego Police, adding that they saw the station wagon heading eastbound on Market Street.
The car was described as an older model Japanese-make station wagon that is either blue or bluish purple, San Diego Police Officer Brad Ruff said.
The vehicle should be missing a part of the front of the car’s right front bumper, which was left at the scene of the accident, and the passenger’s front window on the right side is broken. The vehicle also should have some red paint on it that may have transferred from the victim’s car.
The driver was described as white, in his 50s, with white or gray curly hair.
The woman died at the scene, he said. Her name has been withheld pending notification of next of kin.
