2 pedestrians injured, 4 dogs killed in hit-and-run

Two people on Tuesday were listed in critical condition at a hospital after being struck during a hit-and-run near Sacramento while they were walking their four dogs.

About 10 p.m. Monday night, Harison Long-Randall, 21, of Grass Valley, and Gemily West, 23, of Carmichael, were walking their four dogs. They were crossing the intersection of Engle Road and Garfield Avenue in Carmichael, a town east of Sacramento, when a car hit both pedestrians, injuring them and killing their dogs, before driving off.

Witnesses told the California Highway Patrol that Long-Randall pushed West out of the way. The crash severed Long-Randall’s leg and broke West’s leg. Both suffered internal injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital.

“We don’t even know who the driver was, male or female. There were a couple of witnesses that stated the driver ran through the stop sign on Garfield [Avenue] going southbound,” said CHP Sgt. Lori Harmon.

CHP is looking for a light-colored, possibly bronze, Nissan sedan that is missing a left side mirror and has major front-end damage.

Those with information about the incident are urged to call the North Sacramento CHP office at (916) 338-6710.
