Wednesday, a woman was killed in a hit and run accident in Chico.

Around 7:30 Wednesday night, Chico Police were dispatched to a collision at the intersection of W. Sacramento Ave and Citrus Ave. The caller said he believed the victim was dragged by the fleeing car.

When officers arrived on scene, all they found was personal property in the roadway. It was about 45 minutes later that someone located an unconscious woman near the intersection of W. 6th Ave and Warner Street, about a half mile away.

The woman's injuries were consistent with a vehicle collision. She was then transported to the hospital where she later died from those injuries.

Police are withholding her identity until family is notified. The suspect vehicle was only described as a white SUV, possibly a 4-door. Anyone with home security cameras in that area are being asked to check for footage of this incident and vehicles matching the description, specifically between 7:30 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. If anyone saw the collision or has any information about the incident, they are encouraged to call Chico Police at (530)-897-4911
