UPDATE: Victim Identified in Fatal Pittsburg Hit-and-Run


Pittsburg (KRON) — The victim of a fatal hit-and-run accident in Pittsburg has been identified as Michelle Braz.

She was killed Sunday on Willow Pass Road around 7 p.m.

Police are still trying to find the driver responsible for her death.

Initial reports suggest the driver of a pickup truck lost control and slammed into a power pole. It appears the driver hit Braz in an attempt to avoid the pole before fleeing the scene.

Police are looking for a silver Chevy pickup truck with side steps. Officials believe the truck may display signs of considerable front end damage.

The victim’s husband, Herman Figueroa, says his wife used to collect cans in the neighborhood. He says moments after the accident his dog, whom she was walking at the time, came home and he knew something was wrong.
