Pedestrian killed Sunday morning in hit and run collision on Highway 101
A man is dead after being hit by a truck this morning while walking along Highway 101 near Sunset Avenue.
The California Highway Patrol said Gaurav Mehta was driving a 2011 Toyota Tundra northbound when he struck the pedestrian. Officers said Mehta fled the scene in his vehicle, but stopped just after the SR-299 on-ramp because his car became disabled due to the damage. Mehta allegedly abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot. He was found in a nearby hotel and was arrested for felony hit and run and driving under the influence.
The man died on scene. His name is being withheld pending notification of next kin.
