   FATAL HIT AND RUN COLLISION

 

 

ELK GROVE, CA – On November 7, 2019, at 6:04 p.m., officers responded to the area of Waterman Road and Sheldon Road regarding a person lying in the roadway that had been hit by a vehicle. When officers arrived, they discovered an unresponsive 85-year-old male lying in the roadway of Waterman Road, north of Sheldon Road.

 

Officers and medical personnel were unable to revive the man who was pronounced dead at the scene.  The identification of the deceased will be made by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office. 

 

The preliminary investigation revealed the victim was standing on the west shoulder of Waterman Road just prior to the collision. The suspect vehicle was traveling northbound on Waterman Road when the vehicle veered across the roadway, for an unknown reason, and struck the victim. Witnesses described seeing a red-colored SUV with moderate to major front-end damage flee the scene northbound on Waterman Road and then made a westbound turn onto Calvine Road. The driver was described as a Caucasian or Hispanic male. Based on evidence recovered at the scene and the investigation, investigators believe the suspect vehicle to be a late 1980s to early 2000s GMC or Chevrolet SUV.
