Tyesha Keola, 33


The Sacramento Coroner’s Office has identified the woman that was struck and killed by a pickup truck on Thursday.

The victim is 33-year old Tyesha Shanks.

California Highway Patrol says the man driving that truck plowed through the number three lane, killing Shanks instantly. Investigators added that the truck had a Comcast logo on it, though it’s unclear if the truck belonged to the company or if the driver was an employee.

That driver, Kenneth Palmer, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. He has since been released.
