Jan 3, 2017 (CHP) On January 1, 2017, at approximately 1:30 AM, a 21 year old male from Spring Valley was the right front passenger in a gray Nissan Sentra traveling eastbound SR-94 east of Kenwood Drive. The driver and passenger were in a verbal argument when the driver pulled into the center median and came to a stop. The driver immediately exited the vehicle and began running in the #1 lane of traffic where he was struck by an unknown type vehicle.
The driver of the hit and run vehicle continued eastbound on SR-94 and failed to stop at the scene. The pedestrian succumbed to his injuries. At this time, we have no further information on the hit and run vehicle.
We are asking anyone with information regarding this collision or the hit and run driver or vehicle to contact Officer Kevin Pearlstein at the El Cajon CHP Office (619) 401-2000 or KPearlstein@chp.ca.gov.
