Pedestrian Killed By Hit-And-Run Driver In Citrus Heights

CITRUS HEIGHTS (CBS13) — The search is on for a hit-and-run driver who killed a pedestrian late last night in Citrus Heights.

The victim was crossing Greenback Lane near Verner Avenue when a passing car hit him and kept driving. Paramedics arrived on the scene and declared the man dead.

Witness say the suspect’s vehicle was a compact, white or light colored car. Police say the car should be heavily damaged, including having a broken windshield.

Police say that because the victim was jaywalking, if the driver stopped, there may have been no crime at all.

    The driver was probably under the influence, or driving a stolen car. This is Sacramento, folks.
