Pedestrian Fatality Discovered Along Florin Road
A pedestrian fatality occurred in the Florin area of Sacramento on September 14 following a hit and run accident. The death was reported to the California Highway Patrol (CHP) around 7:44 p.m. when a female pedestrian was discovered lying in the roadway along Florin Road, just west of 55th Street. The police log reports that there was no description of the vehicle involved in the pedestrian fatality, which apparently left the scene of the accident. The Sacramento Coroner’s Office arrived at the crash site to declare the person dead, however, the name of the deceased has not been released pending notification of the next of kin. This is not the first time that a hit and run accident involving the death of a pedestrian has occurred in this area. In February, a 44-year-old male pedestrian was struck at Florin Road and 55th Street by a hit and run driver, which resulted in his death.
