When: Early Saturday morning in California just after 0100 hours
Narrative: According to the CHP, another car that was heading east along Marysville Road, stopped after the driver saw a person lying in the westbound roadway. Seeing a 2002 Hyundai Accent driving right into where the person was lying, the other driver started flashing his high-beams.
However, the Hyundai - reportedly driven by 26-year-old San Diego resident (and FF) Andrew Gruenberg - kept on going and ran over the pedestrian!
CHP says that one of the 6 other passengers in the Hyundai - which is designed to only carry five passengers, including the driver - called 911 to report that they believe they had just run over an animal.
The Hyundai then eventually stopped two miles down the road, where just two of its passengers got off and into another car to drive back to the scene of the accident. They soon found that emergency personnel were at the scene, tending to the pedestrian who was hit by the Hyundai.
The pedestrian was 32-year-old FF Michael P. Kelly II. He suffered major blunt-force trauma to his head and torso and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The CHP believes that alcohol played a factor in the incident, but no arrests have been made as of Sunday night.
