Sheriffs seek information on bicyclist hit-and-run in Del Mar

Woman in hospital with substantial head injuries

San Diego County Sheriffs are urging the public to come forward with any information on the bicyclist who struck a 22-year old woman on Carmel Valley Road, Sunday night.

The woman, a recent college graduate whose identity was not released, was walking her dog eastbound on Carmel Valley Road in Del Mar when a bicyclist struck her, knocking her over and causing her to hit the back of her head on the ground.

Deputy Dawn Patterson, of the Encinitas Sheriffs Dept., said the bicyclist told the woman he was sorry and then continued traveling. The woman called her boyfriend, telling him she needed to go to the hospital. A CAT scan revealed swelling and bleeding in the brain, and Patterson said the woman is still hospitalized with “significant head injuries.”

Patterson said there is no information available on the bicyclist, except that he was a man. She said the Sherriff’s department is not pursuing criminal charges at this time, and is urging the bicyclist to come forward.

Anyone with information on the incident, which occurred around 9:18 p.m. June 13, is asked to call Deputy Patterson at (858) 565-5200.
