San Diego Police Ask for Help in Search for Driver in Fatal Hit and Run

San Diego Police have put out a call for help from the public in identifying a driver involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash earlier this week.

The San Diego Police Department said 62-year-old Gloria Williams was in a motorized wheelchair while traveling in the street along Euclid Avenue when she was hit from behind by a dark-colored SUV around 3:45 a.m. Monday.

The driver of the SUV did not stop after hitting Williams, who was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Police said it was unclear why Williams was in the street at the time.

Investigators obtained video of the SUV near the crash site from street light cameras. They also obtained video that shows the driver pulling into a nearby gas station.

Surveillance cameras captured images of the suspected hit and run driver, described by police as a heavyset black man with close-cropped hair, and his vehicle, described only as a dark- colored sport utility vehicle.

The suspect, who was walking with a cane, was dressed in baggy plaid pants and a black sweatshirt with ``#here we go! steelers'' in large yellow print on the front.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8411 or contact the agency online at sdcrimestoppers.org. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.
