This was the second pedestrian killed in the Hollywood Park area this year. A 71-year-old grandmother was killed Jan. 31 walking across Freeport Boulevard at an intersection about a half-mile south of where Thursday’s accident occurred.
Sacramento Police Department detectives were on the scene, and the investigation is ongoing, Macaulay said.
