Witnesses Needed After Elderly Woman Killed By Hit-And-Run In Millbrae

MILLBRAE (CBS SF) — Sheriff’s deputies are seeking witnesses to help them find a driver who fled after fatally striking an elderly pedestrian with their truck Saturday evening in Millbrae.

Around 7:10 a.m., deputies responded to Rollins and Adrian Road after receiving a report of a crash involving a pedestrian, according to sheriff’s officials.

An off duty paramedic was able to arrive before deputies and administered aid to the victim, who was found lying in the crosswalk in the front of the center median on Rollins Road, sheriff’s officials said.

The victim, a woman in her 70s, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where she died. Her identity has not been released.

Deputies weren’t able to locate the suspect vehicle. Investigators however believe that at least five vehicles were in the area at the time and may have been witnessed the hit-and-run, according to sheriff’s officials.

Additionally, investigators found surveillance images of two vehicles that may have witnesses the incident.

The first was described as possibly a white Chevy pickup truck with a camper shell and business markings on the tailgate and rear of the camper shell. The second vehicle was described as possibly a Toyota or similar white midsize king cab pickup truck with black bed liner, sheriff’s officials said.

Anyone with information about the witness or suspect vehicles is encouraged to call the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Millbrae Bureau at (650) 259-2300 or Det. Patrick Carey at (650) 259-2321. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call the sheriff’s anonymous tip line at (800) 547-2700.
