Pedestrian Struck by Vehicle
On January 25, 2022, at approximately 11:01 a.m., deputies assigned to the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station Traffic Division responded to a report of a vehicle versus pedestrian collision in the 600 block of Woodward Street, in the city of San Marcos.
During the preliminary investigation, deputies learned a 23 year-old female was driving northbound on Woodward Street when a 19 year-old male pedestrian entered the roadway in front of her vehicle and was struck. The pedestrian sustained major injuries and was transported by San Marcos Fire Department Paramedics to Palomar Hospital. He is being treated for severe injuries suffered from the collision and is currently in critical condition. The driver of the vehicle was not injured from the collision.
Investigators closed a section of Woodward Street for several hours while the collision investigation was conducted. Although the investigation is not yet complete, it does not appear that alcohol and/or drugs were a factor in the collision. Fault for the collision has not yet been determined.
Anyone who may have witnessed the collision or captured the incident on video is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Department.
