Richard Henkel has been identified by authorities as the victim in an apparent hit-and-run collision that occurred on August 4 in San Diego. Mr. Henkel, who is described as a 52-year-old homeless man, was found prior to 11:30 p.m. It appears he had attempted to cross an off-ramp from the 5 Freeway and was struck. The driver continued driving without attempting to help. First responders arrived in response to a bystander’s phone call and took the man to an area hospital, where he later perished from his injuries. A witness spotted a white Volkswagen Passat, which was tracked by San Diego police. An individual has been arrested in the case.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim during this difficult time.
