Authorities Investigating Fatal Hit-and-Run Accident on W. El Camino Avenue

SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Police Department is investigating a fatal hit-and-run in North Sacramento in the area of West El Camino Avenue and Grasslands Drive.

A jogger was in a crosswalk when she was struck by a man driving a pickup truck, police said.

Neighbors in the area say it was only a matter of time before something like this happened.

"Nobody does the speed limit out here," neighbor Jeanene Vonhoffman said.

The woman died at the scene.

"She's got to be someone in our neighborhood," Vonhoffman said.

Neighbors say drivers often run the stop sign at the intersection, where another crosswalk was recently removed.

Police described the suspect vehicle as a white pickup truck, possibly raised with a loud exhaust and camper shell, that fled westbound. The truck will likely have some sort of damage to the front.
