Teenager Detained After Killing a Pedestrian in Elk Grove, CA
March 30, 2022

Sacramento County, California (Elk Grove, CA) – On Tuesday evening, March 29, 2022, a 17-year-old teenager was detained after reportedly killing a 53-year-old pedestrian in an Elk Grove hit-and-run incident.

Authorities say the incident occurred about 8:35 p.m. between Elk Grove Boulevard and Shorelake Drive. Authorities rushed to the scene after receiving numerous reports of a man down the road. When they arrived at the location they saw a man with injuries believed to be a result of being struck by a vehicle. According to authorities, the 53-year-old man was walking down Elk Grove and Shorelake Drive when the suspected motorist, heading westbound on Elk Grove Blvd., hit a pedestrian who was not in the crosswalk.

The driver fled the scene after the incident. Just a few hours later, the teenage motorist handed himself in to the Elk Grove Police Department. The motorist was detained and put into Juvenile Hall on counts of vehicular manslaughter, hit and run resulting in death, and hit and run resulting in injury. The offender also had a passenger in the car at the time of the incident. After the collision, the passenger was brought to the hospital and treated for non-life-serious injuries. The specific cause of the collision is still being investigated, although authorities believe speed was a role. The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has not published the suspect or victim’s names.

Anyone with information on this inquiry is asked to contact the Elk Grove Police Department Traffic Bureau at (916) 478-8148.
