SACRAMENTO - A 66-year-old man was killed when he was struck by a tow truck in Elk Grove Tuesday night.
Elk Grove Police Officer Christopher Trim said the tow truck driver was heading eastbound on Elk Grove Blvd. through the Bruceville Rd. intersection on a green light when they struck a man dressed in dark clothing running across the intersection.
The tow truck driver pulled over after striking the man and called 911, Trim said.
Officers arrived at the scene around 10:01 p.m. Responding medical personnel determined the pedestrian, later identified as Zhenfen Wu of Elk Grove, suffered life-threatening injuries and transported him to an area hospital where he died as a result of his injuries.
Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor in the collision, Trim said.
The tow truck driver was not injured in the incident.
