SAN DIEGO, CA – Police have released more information about the victims who were killed by a DUI driver near SD City College on Monday.
According to the Office of the Medical Examiner, all three victims killed by 71-year-old, drug-impaired Craig Voss were adult men, aged 61, 61, and 40. Police have withheld their names as they attempt to contact their next of kin.
Investigators believe all three men were living a transient lifestyle and had taken shelter in the tunnel in the 1400 block of B Street at the time the accident happened, about 9 a.m. Voss was westbound in a Volvo station wagon when he veered onto the sidewalk and plowed down nine pedestrians.
Five victims were transported to area hospitals. There is no update on their condition. The final victim was treated at the scene.
Voss has been charged with the injuries and deaths as well as driving under the influence of drugs.
