MERCED, CA – A call of a hit-and-run accident at approximately 10:05 pm in the area of 16th and O Streets last night left one person dead at the scene and investigators searching for the driver. Authorities taped off the area to conduct an investigation and we are waiting a press release for further information for police.
Witnesses said to MCNTV News that they saw a man who was in the middle of the road. They called Merced PD and as they waited for PD to show up the man in the street was hit by a vehicle (no description given) and the driver didn’t stay.
Another witness who arrived at the same time as the MPD stated, “I saw the body of the guy like twitching and over heard the PD say at 10:12 pm the guy was dead. It happened in front of the car wash on 16th by the bus stop.”
MCNTV News will update this story once a press release is received from the Merced PD.
