The California Highway Patrol reports that a man who appeared to by lying or crawling in the roadway was hit and killed by a vehicle this morning in southern Sacramento County.
At about 5 a.m. today, the man was observed to be down in the roadway when he was struck by a vehicle heading northbound on Power Inn Road at Scottsdale Drive. The driver tried to avoid hitting the man but could not.
A second vehicle, possibly a red or brown pickup truck, also stopped at the scene and may have also hit the man, according to the CHP. The driver of the pickup briefly stopped but then drove away. The CHP wants to speak with the pickup driver.
The driver who initially struck the man was interviewed at the scene and released. No charges are pending against that motorist.
The man who was hit was either dragged or propelled about 75 feet north of the intersection. He died at the scene.
The CHP is seeking witnesses to the traffic incident. Call (916) 681-2300 if you can help.
