Teen killed in Tierrasanta hit-and-run crash


A 16-year-old boy was killed by a hit-and-run driver in Tierrasanta late Thursday night, San Diego police said.

The driver was speeding south on Santo Road as the victim and another boy, also 16, were walking in the road next to a median just before midnight, police said.

One of the teenagers jumped onto the median, near Antigua Boulevard, to avoid being hit by car, police said.

The other teen was struck. Medics arrived and found him dead, police said. His name was not released.

The driver in the black, four-door sedan kept going southbound on Santo.
