Fatality on Hwy 101 Just North of Hwy 36
At approximately 10 p.m., law enforcement located a deceased pedestrian that had apparently been struck by a hit and run vehicle several hours earlier.
As of 11:15 p.m. officers were still in the field and we were unable to get any answers on what occurred. But from listening to scanner traffic, it appears that an individual witnessed something suspicious at approximately 8:15 p.m. that had law enforcement searching for hours for a victim of a hit and run alongside Hwy 101 near the Hwy 36 exit. At 9:40 p.m. an officer is listed as being en route to check the area for a pedestrian where the suspicious vehicle went off the roadway.* A thermal imaging device was even used to search the roadside to no avail. A stroller was found in the area the pedestrian was believed to be hit though. Soon after 10 p.m., the pedestrian was located. CPR was started but by 10:19 p.m. the coroner was requested.
