When officers from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and medical personnel arrived at the scene of the pedestrian accident, they found that the man passed away at the scene due to the grave nature of his injuries. The man was later identified as 52-year-old Christopher Freitas, of Sacramento.

What Caused the Pedestrian Accident?
