DIXON (CBS13) – Police in Dixon are asking for the public’s help to find the driver of an SUV identified as a “vehicle of interest” in the hit-and-run death of a pedestrian.
On Sunday around 8 p.m., police received word that someone was injured in the area of North First and East B streets. As police arrived, they were informed that there were additional calls reporting the incident as a hit-and-run collision, according to Dixon police.
Officers found the injured, unresponsive victim, a 70-year-old female, and performing CPR on her until Dixon Fire Department personnel arrive on the scene. The woman was later pronounced dead at the scene. A second victim, a 71-year-old male pedestrian, was taken to the hospital for treatment of serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Police have identified a vehicle of interest as a white 2010 Nissan Murano with Virginia license plate URS-7882. The vehicle has two distinct decals on the rear window, one of which appears to be a butterfly.
The Solano County Sheriff’s Office of the Coroner is notifying next of kin and will provide additional information as it becomes available.
