A 71-year-old woman was walking near the front entrance of the store when she was struck by a motorist driving a gold 2003-model four-door Honda Accord, California license plate 4ZNN918, police said. The motorist fled the scene without checking on the victim.

Firefighters and police rushed to a parking lot outside a Vons supermarket in Del Mar Height Tuesday, evacuating shoppers as the sounds of ammunition going off rang out.

A witness followed the suspect but lost sight of the Honda in the North Park area, according to police, who said the car sustained moderate front-end damage and might also have damage to the right side of the windshield.

San Diego police are looking for a pair of thieves who made off with more than $56,000 in cigarettes and lottery tickets in eight heists around San Diego County.

The victim suffered a fractured right femur and multiple head lacerations, police said. She remained hospitalized in serious condition Friday morning.

Anyone with information on the identity or location of the hit-and-run driver is asked to call SDPD’s traffic division at 858-573-5002 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. Tipsters can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
