Driver crashes into pedestrian before fleeing scene
According to a recent report from the California Highway Patrol, there was a car accident involving a hit-and-run driver and a pedestrian last Wednesday night in Manteca.
As mentioned in the article, the accident took place just before 11:20 p.m. when California Highway Patrol officers responded to a male pedestrian being struck by a car.
When they arrived at Airport Way near South Kasson Road, they discovered the pedestrian alone in the roadway, and concluded that the driver had fled the scene.
Additionally, sources mentioned that the pedestrian was walking north on Airport Way before being struck. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, according to the report.
