The Chula Vista police are looking for the driver of a silver or blue compact car that ran a red light and struck a 13-year-old girl.
According to reports, the reckless driver was heading east on Palomar Street at around 11:00 p.m. on July 22. The victim was crossing in the crosswalk at the intersection near Del Taco. Witnesses say that the unidentified driver blew through the red light at approximately 50 mph and never slowed down before hitting the girl.
The girl suffered major leg injuries, including a severe fracture and a shattered knee. She remains hospitalized three weeks after the accident.
So far, police have been unable to identify the driver, and all leads have dried up. Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call Officer Rusty Nelson at (619) 476-5300.
