April 23, 2014- A hit and run crash leaves a pedestrian fatally hurt, in an accident that happened on Highway 99. The collision occurred in Fresno, on Wednesday, at about 4:50 AM.
A 1997 Chevrolet pickup truck was driving on southbound Highway 99, south of Herndon Avenue, when it hit a 23 year old woman, who was walking along the side of the freeway for some unknown reason.
Witnesses said the Chevy truck was carrying three people, including the driver. The pickup struck the victim, and then fled the scene of the accident. The California Highway Patrol later caught the suspects in a 7-11 minimart, after a witness reported a truck with extensive damage pull into the store.
The young woman died at the scene of the crash.
The driver could now face charges for felony hit and run, and several others.
