El Camino Avenue Hit and Run Fatality

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento wrongful death attorney. It is hard to fathom how anyone could crash into another vehicle and then leave them to die without rendering assistance or calling 911.

We were saddened to learn of another tragic hit and run fatality in Sacramento over the weekend. The deadly crash took place along El Camino Avenue on Saturday evening.

What Happened?

The incident occurred just after 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 8, 2016, along the 300 block of El Camino Avenue, according to Sacramento Police Department. A woman was driving northbound along Grove Avenue when she was suddenly hit by another motorist who was driving eastbound along El Camino Avenue.

The man drove away from the scene of the crash before officers arrived, authorities said. The woman was transported to an area hospital where she passed away as a result of the severe nature of her injuries.

The Coroner’s Office in Sacramento County has identified the victim of the hit and run crash as 68-year-old, Bertha Bartholomew, of Sacramento.

Sacramento Police are actively searching for the hit and run driver who caused Bartholomew’s death.

If you have information about this tragic hit and run fatality, please contact Sacramento Police Department at (916) 264-5471.

We extend our condolences to the friends and family members of the woman who lost her life in this tragic incident.
