Brothers struck by hit-and-run identified by Sacramento coroner

Two brothers who died after being struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver on a Meadowview street have been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner's office.

Eddie Eugene Richard, 43, and Mark Anthony Richard, 40, died after they were hit by the driver of a pickup truck about 2:45 a.m. Friday on Meadowview Road and 24th Street.

Sacramento police were called to the scene by a citizen who reported a disturbance and saw somebody in the street.

When officers arrived, they found two men in the street. One brother was dead at the scene, while the other was transported to the hospital where he later was pronounced deceased.

Witnesses told police that a white, full-sized pickup truck, driving northbound on 24th Street, struck the two men. The truck then fled the area, according to a police spokesman.
