According to fire officials, a vehicle drove up onto a sidewalk and struck three people.

They said two of the people had minor injuries, with one requiring transport to the hospital. A third person suffered more serious injuries but was stable when taken to the hospital.

Police said the driver fled the scene of the crash in the vehicle. 

Christopher Dinkha’s business is located less than 20 feet away from where it happened.

"Honesty, I've heard worse things in this neighborhood -- I mean getting shot, not even two months ago," he said.

While the front and back of his store are covered by surveillance cameras, Dinkha says the crash happened just out of the camera’s view. He says he's considering widening the view because there tend to be a lot of accidents in the area.

“I don’t go across the street, to be honest," he said. "If I want to go somewhere I hop in my car and go somewhere.”

Police are still searching for the suspect and vehicle, which is described as a dark colored SUV.

Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS, or for Spanish speakers, all 480-TESTIGO.
