2 people hospitalized after multi-vehicle hit-and-run crash in Talmadge

SAN DIEGO, CA – Two people were severely injured after a hit-and-run driver caused a multi-vehicle crash in the Talmadge neighborhood late last night, according to the Times of San Diego.

The accident occurred in the 5100 block of southbound Fairmount Avenue at about 10:20 p.m., when a driver collided with the rear of a 2002 Saturn sedan. The impact caused the Saturn to rotate, and for a person driving a Nissan Altima to collide with the sedan.

The ensuing impact sent both vehicles over the center line and into the northbound lanes. A driver operating a 2014 Toyota Sienna minivan then T-boned the Nissan.

The rear-ending driver fled the scene, and a description of the suspect and vehicle were not immediately available.

The 32-year-old man operating the Nissan was taken to the hospital with severe injuries, including back injuries and head wounds. His passenger also was severely hurt.

Multiple other people sustained minor wounds in the accident.
