A woman was found dead along East Stockton Boulevard near Sheldon Road this morning.
Elk Grove Police say a passerby spotted the 62-year-old's body around 2 a.m., and it appears she was hit by a car that fled the scene.
"We're not exactly sure why she was in the area at 2 o'clock in the morning, but we don't have any information on the vehicle that struck her either," Elk Grover Police Spokesman Chris Trim said.
Trim says they're looking for any witnesses.
There aren't any security cameras in the area so he's putting out the call for tips on vehicles with front-end damage. This is the third time in 12 hours that a pedestrian has been hit and killed by a car in Sacramento County.
