The California Highway Patrol is looking for the driver of a vehicle that killed a man walking Saturday morning west of Highway 99 in Fresno.
CHP officers found the man lying on Olive Avenue, west of Polk Avenue around 6:38 a.m., according to CHP spokesman Vic Taylor.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene by Fresno Fire Captain Michael Kalina. Fresno County Coroner’s officials arrived and did not find any identification on the man, Taylor said, but on Monday the coroner’s office identified him as Dario Corona, 33, of Fresno.
The type of vehicle that hit Corona is not known, and it isn’t known if he was crossing the street when hit, or if the vehicle swerved off the roadway, Taylor said.
