A pedestrian was hit by a big rig around midday Monday at the intersection of Ventura Avenue and Broadway in downtown Fresno.
A witness who did not identify himself said the truck, which was possibly a Fedex vehicle, had the right-of-way as it headed into the intersection when the pedestrian stepped in front of the truck. The intersection is controlled by a traffic light.
The truck hit the pedestrian and dragged him through the intersection, the witness said. A Fresno police officer administered CPR to the victim before other emergency workers arrived.
The driver of the truck drove off. It isn't known if the driver knew he had hit someone. Sgt. Bruce Owen said police are trying to locate the driver.
