Pedestrian killed in last week’s Arden Arcade hit-and-run identified by coroner

A pedestrian struck and killed last week on an Arden Arcade street by a hit-and-run driver was identified by Sacramento County Coroner’s deputies.

Coroner’s deputies said Thomas Kelley, 58, was the man who died at the scene. The coroner’s office did not list a hometown for Kelley on its website.

Kelley was walking outside a crosswalk across westbound El Camino Avenue east of Howe Avenue about 5 a.m. Wednesday when he was struck by someone driving a dark-colored SUV.

The California Highway Patrol is searching for the motorist, who did not stop after striking Kelley.
