Sacramento police say they are investigating a car accident Friday night in North Sacramento that left one man dead after being struck by two different vehicles near John Mackey Memorial Park.
The unidentified man was first hit by a pickup truck traveling west on Roseville Road near Connie Drive in Hagginwood shortly before 8 p.m., according to a news release by the Sacramento Police Department.
