It was a tragic day for pedestrians in San Diego County yesterday. In three separate incidents, all occurring within one hour, a pedestrian was hit by a car and killed.
The first accident occurred on Friars Road just after 6:00 p.m. when a 54-year-old man waked into westbound traffic and was struck by a late model Mercedes. Only a half hour later an SUV struck and killed a man near the rodeo grounds at Highway 67. Remarkably, a half hour later another pedestrian was struck and killed on Sweetwater Road near Olive Street.
Investigations are ongoing with regard to who was at fault for the incidents.
