Police began life saving measures before fire personnel arrived, but unfortunately, the pedestrian was pronounced dead at 10:39 PM, the report explained.
The driver hit and stayed at the scene, and cooperated with the investigation, police said. “At this point drugs and alcohol are not believed to be involved, but further investigation is needed,” Fremont police explained. This driver did not hit and run.
In this case, the driver collided with a pedestrian. As of the time of this report, it is unknown who was at fault. But, the driver here did the right thing by staying at the accident scene.
