Hit-and-Run Crash Kills Teen
A tragic hit-and-run crash killed a teenage student who was on her way to school on Tuesday, September 20, 2016.
A 17-year-old girl was on her way school on Tuesday in South Sacramento. She was walking westbound along Meadowview Road, in the vicinity of Coral Gables Court, when a vehicle struck her down and drove off. Investigators are unsure whether the girl was walking on the sidewalk or in the crosswalk at the time of the accident.
What Type of Vehicle?
It is still unknown what type of vehicle crashed into the girl. Police are looking at surveillance video captured in the vicinity of the crash to find out more about the motorist who failed to stop. Officer Matt McPhail from the Sacramento Police Department, indicated the vehicle is expected to have front passenger or front end damage as a result of the impact. Witnesses are encouraged to contact the Sacramento Police Department with information about the crash. If you were in the Meadowview Road and Coral Cable Court area on Tuesday morning and have information about this crime, please contact local authorities. The family of the victim seek answers and request witnesses come forward to help bring this individual to justice.
Young Teen Forever Remembered
The young woman was passionate about her education. The motivation she had for her studies caused her to wake up early every morning before dawn and walk to school. Family members and friends visited the crash scene on Tuesday and comforted one another after this senseless person ended her life. They hope the hit and run driver is brought to justice very soon.
