This happened near our house and our condolences go out to the Hess family.  This is a sad reminder to all drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists to slow down, stop completely and look before proceeding when at a red light or intersection.  As a driver, the possibility of hurting another person is one of my biggest fears. 

The Sacramento County Coroner has released the name of the jogger struck by a pickup Monday in Elk Grove.  She was identified as Teresa Hess, 53, of Elk Grove. She was pronounced dead 1 p.m. Tuesday.

Elk Grove police say Hess was jogging across Laguna Boulevard when hit by a pickup truck.  Hess was thrown 50 feet on impact. She was not responsive when taken to a local hospital.

Police said that at about 8 a.m. Hess stepped off the curb on Laguna Boulevard near Laguna Park Drive and was hit by the vehicle. The 32-year-old driver of the truck, who had his 7-year-old daughter in the vehicle with him, was traveling eastbound on Laguna Boulevard.

An investigation has revealed that the driver, an Elk Grove resident, ran a red light, according to police spokesman officer Chris Trim. The driver stayed at the scene.

"The light had been red for several seconds," when the driver's pickup entered the intersection," Trim said today.  Laguna Boulevard and Laguna Park Drive is a four-way intersection controlled by traffic lights.
