UPDATE: West Sacramento police release photo of RV sought in fatal hit-and-run

West Sac RV suspects.PNGWest Sac RV.PNGA man who died after he was struck by a recreational vehicle in West Sacramento on Tuesday night has been identified by the Yolo County Coroner's Office as Michael Ray Anderson, 55, a West Sacramento resident.

West Sacramento police are looking for the driver of the RV that hit Anderson in front of a liquor store before fleeing. Anderson was pronounced dead at the scene.

"We're treating this as a homicide," said Lt. Tod Sockman, a West Sacramento police spokesman.

Police were called at 9:40 p.m. about an auto-pedestrian accident in front of the Low Cost Liquor store, 960 Sacramento Ave.

When officers arrived, they found Anderson on the ground. Witnesses told police that the man was hit by a motor home, which left at a high rate of speed afterward. It was last seen eastbound on Sacramento Avenue.

Police said the motor home (pictured) was described as possibly a 1999 Tiffin Allegro, 28 to 30 feet long, off-white with a blue or turquoise rocker on the bottom.

"We didn't get a good plate on it," Sockman said.

The driver was described as being a white male with no shirt on. "He had a lot of tattoos," Sockman said.

Investigators have determined that an argument occurred between the occupants of the RV, the victim and other parties. Police said people of interest in the case are described as a white man and woman (pictured), both in their early 30s.

"There was some arguing, either with that person (the victim) or the driver," Sockman said.

If anyone has information on the incident or the suspect, call West Sacramento police dispatch at (916) 372-3375.
