San Diego, CA – Woman Severely Injured during Brutal Collision on Esplanade Court Entrance at Westfield UTC Mall
San Diego, CA (August 6, 2018) – Local police reported that a woman sustained severe injuries after a brutal collision with a sedan that occurred at the Esplanade Court entry point to the Westfield UTC Mall. The incident happened at approximately 12:50 PM in the afternoon on Sunday, August 5, 2018. At this time, no detailed information concerning the identity of the female pedestrian or the 38-year old male motorist involved in the crash has been revealed.
Based on initial police reports, the 38-year old man had been driving a Hyundai sedan into the parking lot of the Westfield UTC Mall when, without warning, the female pedestrian appeared from behind a parked vehicle. Immediately, the driver plowed into the woman as she stepped into the direct path of his sedan.
Sometime later, emergency crews brought the pedestrian to a nearby hospital, where she received treatment for critical injuries to her left leg and her head. The current physical condition of the victim has not been disclosed.
Authorities have disregarded DUI as a possible cause and have not specified if the driver sustained injuries during the impact.
Presently, police are conducting an ongoing investigation into the accident.
We extend our most heartfelt prayers and most loving thoughts to the pedestrian and wish her a swift and efficient recovery from her injuries.
