A Second Hit and Run Collision Occurred on Thursday Evening
The fatal hit and run that likely occurred on Thursday about 7 p.m. was not the only hit and run on that night and that time, according to Arcata Police.
Sgt. Keith Altizer confirmed that on Thursday at 7:05 p.m., a woman was struck by a vehicle on I Street near Samoa Boulevard in Arcata. The 34-year-old woman received minor injuries from a vehicle that quickly fled the collision scene, he explained.
“It looks like someone failed to yield to someone in the crosswalk,” Altizer explained.
Before “the suspect fled the scene in the vehicle,…the driver had a brief conversation with one of the witnesses,” he reported. “He was a white, male adult, mid twenties to thirties, heavy build with facial hair…We believe [the car] is a mid 90’s to early 2000’s Nissan 4 door tan or greyish.”
