Dean Alvarez has been identified by authorities as the victim in an alleged hit-and-run pedestrian collision that occurred on May 13 in Vista. Mr. Alvarez, 60, was apparently at the crossing of West Vista Way and North Melrose Drive at approximately 4:30 a.m. when he was reportedly struck first by a Dodge Ram pickup, which may have sustained front-end damage, and then by a second vehicle which wasn’t described. Authorities say that neither vehicle stopped and witnesses are being sought by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, which is investigating the tragic incident.
