SACRAMENTO - Sacramento police are investigating a fatal accident after a 90-year-old male pedestrian was struck and killed by a car at 10:17 p.m. Wednesday
The accident happened in the area of Meadowview Road and Coral Gables Court. According to police, the driver apparently did not realize he had hit a pedestrian and dragged the victim down the road.
The victim has been identified as Russell Victor Johnson, 90, of Sacramento.
When police arrived at the scene, they found that the male victim, who was still trapped under the vehicle, was hit by at least two cars in the area of 21st St. and Meadowview Road.
The victim was declared dead at the scene.
The accident temporarily forced the closure of Meadowview road between 21st and 29th streets early Thursday morning.
Sacramento police have not indicated if the driver will face charges. DUI does not appear to be a factor in this collision according to a Sacramento police spokesman.
