    Witnesses Corner Driver After Crosswalk Hit-And-Run

    Car Hits 4-Year-Old Girl

    SAN DIEGO -- Witnesses chased down a man who drove off after hitting a 4-year-old girl who was crossing the street with her mother in a crosswalk, police said Tuesday night.

    The girl was in a marked crosswalk with her mother and younger brother at 54th Street and Haiman Drive at about 5:20 p.m., when a white sport utility vehicle passed several cars that had stopped for the family and struck the child.

    Two motorists who witnessed the collision followed the SUV when it drove off, police said. The driver pulled over two blocks later and got out of the SUV to inspect the damage to the right front of the vehicle, according to officials. The witnesses blocked the SUV with their cars and called police.

    Officers arrested a 72-year-old man on suspicion of hit-and-run. They said alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the collision.
    The girl was taken to Children's Hospital in Kearny Mesa, where she was treated for fractures to an arm and a leg. She was scheduled to undergo tests to determine if she sustained other injuries, officials said.

    I'll drink a beer to that one. I hope she is okay, and he gets some good quality time with "Bubba" in a small cell.

    You know what's scary though? I swear to goodness, we have had at least one vehicle vs pedestrian a week here!

    Just today, someone tried to pull around me while I was stopped for a car backing out of their driveway, and I've had it happen while I was stopped for pedestrians too!

    People don't care about others much it appears. Too much hurry to get somewhere or the "I own the road, I'm in a car attitude."
