A man was killed in a horrific hit-and-run crash in Oceanside, which involved a driver who police say was under the influence. According to a news report on NBC San Diego, the crash occurred in the early morning on June 27, 2016 in the 4000 block of Mission Avenue. Witnesses said a man who was walking on the sidewalk was struck by the car, which officials later determined was being driven by 29-year-old Esteysi Sanchez Izazaga.
Police said because of how fast Izazaga was driving, the victim flew into the windshield head down coming to rest on the front passenger seat. The man’s leg detached from his body and flew through the back window landing on the truck of the car. Izazaga continued driving for about a mile. She then parked the vehicle and walked away before officers arrived at the scene. Shortly after she abandoned her car, her boyfriend called the police and reported the incident. She was arrested and charged with felony DUI, hit-and-run and vehicular manslaughter.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Continue reading →
