CHICO, Calif. - A skateboarder was the victim of a hit-and-run Sunday morning in Chico and now the California Highway Patrol is asking the public for help identifying the driver and a vehicle involved.
The hit-and-run was reported at approximately 7:20 a.m. on Sunday at the intersection of W. Sacramento Avenue and Bidwell Avenue.
A 30-year-old male skateboarder was traveling eastbound on W. Sacramento Avenue when he was hit by a silver or gray sedan. The skateboarder landed on the westbound side of the road in a green area, which helped to reduce his injuries, according to a CHP investigator.
The CHP believes there is severe windshield damage on the gray/silver sedan. The driver continued eastbound without stopping to check on the pedestrian. A witness told the CHP investigator that the driver of the sedan rolled down their side window so they could see to navigate since the windshield was broken.
Investigators are working with local businesses to see if they can further identify the make, model and even a license number for the vehicle that struck the skateboarder.
The CHP is hoping the vehicle or its driver can be identified with the public's help. If you know anything about this hit-and-run incident please call 530-332-2800.
