On April 18, 2021, at about 10:42 p.m., officers with the Eureka Police Department responded to the intersection of Wabash Avenue and A Street for the report of a hit and run vehicle vs. pedestrian collision.
The 64-year-old female pedestrian, a resident of Eureka, was located lying in the roadway with moderate facial and head injuries.
