South Sacramento Pedestrian Hit-and-Run

I’m Ed Smith, a South Sacramento car accident lawyer. During the evening hours of Tuesday, March 7, 2017, a pedestrian was walking in South Sacramento when a motorist collided with him. Unfortunately, the man suffered fatal injuries in the accident.

What Happened?

A man was walking along the 7700 block of Lemon Hill Avenue at about 7:00 pm. The man was crossing Lemon Hill Avenue in the vicinity of Wilkinson Street when an unknown vehicle crashed into him. The motorist fled from the scene.

Was the Pedestrian Okay?

Unfortunately, the man suffered fatal injuries. Officers indicated that the victim was reported to be in his 20’s. The identity of the man has not yet been released by authorities.

Our condolences are with the loved ones of the young man that passed away in this tragic hit-and-run pedestrian accident.

Has the Hit-and-Run Driver Been Found?

Unfortunately, the hit-and-run driver that crashed into the pedestrian has not yet been found. Sergeant Bryce Heinlein, a spokesman for the Sacramento Police Department, indicated that authorities did not have a description of the vehicle involved. However, officers will be investigating the pedestrian accident through surveillance cameras that may have recorded the incident. Police are asking that if any one witnessed the collision or observed a car leaving the area  at a high rate of speed to contact authorities.
