Police say the pedestrian was walking across the street, but not on a crosswalk. According to witnesses, all three vehicles hit the pedestrian and left the scene, but it may have been possible the gray Dodge Charger and the unknown dark-colored vehicle didn’t know they had even hit the pedestrian.

The investigation is ongoing, and it is still not known if alcohol, drugs, and speed were contributing factors for this crash. KRQE News 13 will provide more details as they become available.
