A woman jogging along a sidewalk in Chula Vista was struck and killed by a vehicle and the driver fled the scene, police said.

The incident happened around 8:15 p.m. on Lane Avenue near Scobee Park, Chula Vista Police said. The area is north of Otay Lakes Road and east of State Route 125.

The woman was taken to Mercy Hospital where she later died from her injuries. Her identity has not been released.

The suspect vehicle was described as a large, white Chevy Silverado pickup truck with black rims, according to Chula Vista Capt. Phil Collum. 

Police believe the vehicle was traveling on the road and approached the jogger going in the same direction as the woman. 

Then, the pickup truck drove off road, onto a sidewalk and into the pedestrian. 

The driver continued traveling south and did not stop, Collum said. 

Anyone with information can contact the Chula Vista Police Department by calling (619) 422-TIPS.
