Post Date: 06/27/2017 8:00 AM
TYPE OF INCIDENT: FATAL PEDESTRIAN COLLISION
DATE AND TIME OF INCIDENT: 06/26/2017 at 2045 hours
LOCATION OF INCIDENT: 200 Block of North Mollison Avenue, El Cajon
RESUME OF INCIDENT:
On 06-26-17 at approximately 8:45 pm, El Cajon Police Officers and paramedics responded to the 200 block of North Mollison Avenue on a call of a pedestrian that had been struck by a vehicle. Upon arrival, the victim was found to have suffered major injuries and died at the scene. The name of the individual, an adult female in her 50's, is being withheld pending notification of the family.
After a preliminary investigation of the scene and the taking of witness statements, it appears the pedestrian was walking in an easterly direction across North Mollison outside of a controlled intersection when she was struck by a black 2005 4 door Acura sedan which was traveling Northbound in the #2 lane. The driver of the sedan, a 19 year old Hispanic male resident of El Cajon, remained on scene and has been fully cooperative with this investigation. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the collision at this time.
The El Cajon Police Department is asking anyone with information regarding this collision to call (619) 579-3311.
We would also like to remind those who walk at night to obey all traffic control devices, only cross the street at designated, controlled intersections, and wear bright or light colored clothing for visibility. For those driving vehicles during hours or darkness, please pay extra attention to the roadway and be aware of pedestrians that may be entering the roadway to cross.
