[ARCHIVED] Vehicle vs Pedestrian - 2700 block of Spring St.

PASO ROBLES, CA - On Monday, April 1, 2019 at approximately 9:30pm, officers from the Paso Robles Police Department responded to the 2700 block of Spring St. for a reported vehicle versus pedestrian traffic collision. Upon arrival, officers located the victim injured in the roadway. The victim had numerous cuts and abrasions. Through the initial investigation, it was determined that the incident started at Rite Aid, 2424 Spring St. The victim was working for Rite Aid as a Loss Prevention Officer. The victim said he noticed a white male adult leave the store without paying for several items. When the loss prevention officer went to contact the shoplifting suspect, the suspect ran to the parking lot and got into a white colored pickup truck.

The vehicle continued north bound on Spring St. where the loss prevention officer eventually was unable to maintain a grip on the vehicle and fell into the roadway, causing his injuries. The suspect vehicle fled the scene.
