South Sacramento: Hit and Run Fatality

South Sacramento: Hit and Run Fatality

Hit and Run Fatality


I’m Ed Smith, a pedestrian lawyer in South Sacramento. At approximately 1:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 9, 2016 at the 3900 block of Mack Road and Archean Way a tragic hit and run fatality occurred.

What Happened?

Witnesses that spoke with officers of the Sacramento Police Department said they saw a man in the road when he was hit by a car. The driver of that car left the scene. Tragically, the victim was hit again by a second vehicle. Thankfully, the driver of that car obeyed the law and stopped at the scene to wait for police.

Why would the first car in this hit and run fatality fail to stop?

There are many reasons he or she might have failed to stop. Fear is a big one. Especially, if the driver was under the influence of drugs and or alcohol. The driver may have been driving without a valid license or an uninsured motorist. Or perhaps, the driver was distracted.

WATCH: Youtube Video: Distracted Driving is Like Driving Blind. By Ed Smith. In this video by, you will see how someone who is texting while driving may become so distracted that they fail to see a pedestrian in the roadway. Texting is like driving blind!

WATCH: Youtube Video: Police: Pedestrian hit, killed by big rig in Sacramento. This video, by our friends at KCRA3 News is about a different pedestrian fatality that also occurred on Mack Road. This video is helpful because it discusses the different aspects of motor vehicle versus pedestrian accidents along Mack Road in South Sacramento.
