GRASS VALLEY (CBS13) — A Grass Valley woman is under arrest on suspicion hitting and killing a Waste Management employee, then fleeing the scene.
The incident happened a little before 9 a.m. Monday along McCourtney Road, near the Nevada County Fairgrounds.
California Highway Patrol says the Waste Management employee, 59-year-old Michael Jodoin from Rough and Ready, was cleaning up on the side of the road when he was struck by a vehicle. The driver took off from the scene before officers arrived, while the employee was left with fatal injuries.
Following a lead, investigators say they were able to track down the suspected driver’s address.
Amy Hannan, a 47-year-old Grass Valley resident, was soon arrested. She is facing charges of felony hit-and-run and DUI and was booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility.
