Sacramento County Coroner's deputies have released the name of the young man killed in a hit-and-run in the Valley Hi area on Wednesday.
He was identified as David Tyrell Mickens, 29, of Sacramento.
Shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday, police and paramedics were called to the 5900 block of Valley Hi Drive where Mickens was unresponsive in the road. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
