BAY POINT, CA (July 4, 2020) – A pedestrian died in a hit-and-run crash Saturday evening in Bay Point, CHP officials said.
The crash happened just before 10:00 p.m. at the intersection of Seaview Drive and Shore Road.
According to the California Highway Patrol, an Audi sedan struck a male pedestrian, throwing him into a nearby parked vehicle.
Paramedics arrived and pronounced the pedestrian dead at the scene.
Police said the victim was in the roadway, using fireworks, when the Audi driver, who was traveling at a high rate of speed, struck him. His identity was withheld pending notification of his family.
