A pedestrian who died Tuesday evening after he was struck by a vehicle in southeast Sacramento has been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.
The coroner’s website lists the man killed as Carlos Dominguez-Becerra of Sacramento.
Police received a report at 7:18 p.m. that a man had been struck by a vehicle in the 7700 block of Lemon Hill Avenue and the vehicle left the scene, said Sgt. Bryce Heinlein, Sacramento police spokesman. Dominguez-Becerra was crossing Lemon Hill Avenue from south to north at Wilkinson Street, he said.
Heinlien said officers found Dominguez-Becerra unconscious and he died at the scene.
Heinlein said police had no description of the vehicle involved. Officers will be canvassing the area for surveillance cameras that might have recorded the incident.
Police ask anyone who witnessed the collision or who might have seen a vehicle leaving the area at high speed to call the Police Department’s dispatch center at 916-264-5471 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at 916-443-4357, or submit an anonymous tip using the free “P3 Tips” smartphone app. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
