VIDEO: Pedestrian killed on Highway 101 in San Carlos felony hit-and-run, suspect arrested


SAN CARLOS (KRON) — The California Highway Patrol was searching for a felony hit-and-run driver who fatally struck a pedestrian in San Carlos on Friday, authorities said.

But at around 9:30 p.m., the CHP tweeted it has a suspect in custody. The suspect is an Asian woman in her 30s, authorities said.


The crash was initially reported just after 6:35 p.m. at southbound Highway 101 and Brittan Avenue.

Officers said the 45-year-old Redwood City man walked into the No. 4 lane, and may have been under the influence of alcohol.

A Sig-alert was issued at 6:59 p.m., and the southbound off-ramps to Holly Street and Brittan are both closed. There is no estimate for when they will reopen.

Officers were looking for a white Toyota with damage to the front end but were not yet certain what model Toyota was involved in the crash, which remains under investigation.

Traffic is still heavy in the area.
