Police-Cars-NightSAN DIEGO — A 25-year-old woman was in custody Friday, accused of striking a pedestrian while driving drunk in Pacific Beach and striking another motorist while fleeing the scene, police said.

The woman was driving a Nissan Pathfinder when she struck a 25-year-old man in the intersection of Garnet Avenue and Everts Street about 3:20 p.m. Thursday, according to San Diego police Officer David Stafford.

The man sustained a fractured foot, for which he was taken to a local hospital, Stafford said.

The woman drove on after striking the pedestrian, but was followed by a witness as she drove several blocks at a high rate of speed while running stop signs, Stafford said.

She allegedly struck a car in the 1000 block of Loring Avenue, causing the other driver to sustain a foot injury and inflicting undetermined injuries on herself, Stafford said.

The woman — who faced felony DUI and hit-and-run charges — was taken to a local hospital to treat “complaints of pain,” he said.
