One person is dead after being hit by a suspected drunken driver Saturday night in Chico.
CHP investigators say a Jeep Cherokee driven by 23-year-old Travis English was headed north on Highway 99 when he exited on to Cohasset Road shortly after 10 p.m. Moments later, the Jeep struck a pedestrian walking along the exit ramp. The female victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. The name of the victim is not expected to be released until sometime Monday.
