SAN DIEGO — Investigators are searching for a driver accused of pinning a 47-year-old man against his car as he loaded his 7-year-old into the back seat.
San Diego County Crime Stoppers released a photo and short video of a silver Saturn Vue that reportedly fled the crash in Mid-City on Sunday.
Police said a 47-year-old man was helping his 7-year-old get in the back seat of his 2017 Toyota Corolla around 3 p.m. when the Saturn Vue heading westbound in the parking lot swerved to the left and pinned the father against the rear door of the Corolla. Police said the dad suffered severe injuries to his lower extremities.
The driver of the Vue reportedly stuck around for 10 seconds then drove off through the shopping center onto Redwood Street when people started to walk toward the crash. Surveillance video from a nearby business showed the car leaving the scene.
Police said the car had front end damage, specifically to the left turn signal and left bumper.
