SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is asking for help from the public in locating a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a pedestrian near Watt  Avenue and Marconi Avenue in Sacramento, Monday.

According to CHP, officers found the 35-year-old male victim in the northbound lanes of Watt Avenue. Officers said they don't know if he was in the crosswalk when he was hit.
