Hit-and-run driver kills two on Meadowview street

An argument or fight on a Meadowview street turned deadly when both men involved in the altercation were hit and killed by the driver of a pickup truck.

Sacramento police were called about 2:45 a.m. today to Meadowview Road and 24th Street by a citizen who reported a disturbance and saw somebody in the street.

When officers arrived, they found two men in the street. One man 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.

It is not known if the driver of the truck had anything to do with the argument, police said.
