California Highway Patrol is investigating a south Sacramento hit-and-run collision that killed a 29-year-old Sacramento man Thursday.

Just before 1:30 a.m., a pedestrian was crossing Florin Road near Bowling Drive when he was struck in the far left lane by a vehicle, according to a CHP incident report.

The collision launched the man into the center median, where he hit a tree, officials said. Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District officials pronounced the man dead at the scene, according to the incident report.

The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as David Edward Lee Jackson, a Sacramento resident.

A witness described the suspect vehicle as an older green Chevrolet Silverado with minor front-end damage, CHP’s report said.

Witnesses or anyone with information about the hit-and-run is urged to call the South Sacramento CHP office at 916-681-2300.
