SAN DIEGO — San Diego County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of Oscar Solis Jr., 24, a suspect in a hit-and-run injury accident in February in Pacific Beach.
A warrant was issued for Solis for felony hit-and-run and felony driving under the influence, said San Diego police Officer James R. Johnson. The suspect’s family has refused to cooperate with police and may be hiding him, Johnson said. His parents live in San Jose, and his brother lives in Highland, Calif.
Police said that on Feb. 28, Solis crashed his vehicle into a tree on Ingraham Street near Perez Cove Way. His female passenger was severely injured. The driver’s side door of his vehicle would not open, so Solis opened the passenger door and pushed the woman out, then crawled over her body to flee, Johnson said.
Solis ran and flagged a cab, Johnson said. He later called police and said that he had been carjacked. An investigation determined that he had been driving while intoxicated.
Solis is 5 feet 10 inches tall, 180 pounds, and has brown hair and green eyes. He may shave his head and at times has had a mustache and goatee.
Anyone with information about his location is asked to call the police Traffic Investigations Unit at (858) 495-7805, or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477. Anonymous email and text messages can be sent via www.sdcrimestoppers.com.
