A man jogging in Castro Valley Thursday morning was injured when a car struck him in a crosswalk, according to a California Highway Patrol officer. A 29-year-old Hayward resident was jogging west on the south sidewalk of Castro Valley Boulevard and stopped at the intersection of Strobridge Avenue around 11:10 a.m., CHP Officer Daniel Jacowitz said. When the jogger began crossing the street with the “Walk” signal, he was struck by a 1998 Ford Escort, believed to be driven by a 70-year-old San Leandro woman who turned east onto Castro Valley Boulevard from northbound Strobridge Avenue, Jacowitz said.
The Ford Escort left the area after striking the man, as did the pedestrian. However, later he went to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley for minor injuries to his right knee and right wrist, Jacowitz said. The CHP is working to track down the Escort driver suspected in the hit-and-run. Jacowitz said the driver’s full license plate number had been recorded.
