Site of hit and run – 3500 block of Sports Arena Blvd, in front of Pechanga Arena.

A custodian at Silver Gate Elementary in Point Loma, Sharon Wood, was seriously injured in a hit-and-run incident as she and two others were crossing Sports Arena Boulevard after a Gulls game at Pechanga Arena on January 3. A short time later, a suspect was arrested.

Wood was attending the game with friends and once it was over, they were crossing the 3500 block, reportedly outside the crosswalk. The driver of a silver 2000 Ford Mustang had exited the Home Depot parking lot on the south side of the street, turned right and struck the pedestrians in the No. 2 lane. Ms. Wood suffered a fractured pelvis and left ankle. The others were also injured.

The driver did not stop but continued eastbound on Sports Arena Boulevard. A short time later his vehicle was spotted by Harbor Police in the 2000 block of Shelter Island Drive. Witnesses at the crash scene positively identified the Mustang driver.

Marc Wohlfeil, 54, was taken into custody on suspicion of felony hit-and-run and DUI drugs.

All three injured pedestrians were taken to a hospital. Besides Wood, a 55-year-old woman suffered fractures to her face and a brain bleed and a 54-year-old man suffered a minor leg injury and cuts to his hands.

Ms. Wood will be in a wheelchair for about eight weeks and will miss about four months of work at the school. She will need physical therapy to be able to walk again. Times of San Diego
