FREMONT, CA (May 19, 2023) – Early Sunday morning, a woman was fatally struck in a hit-and-run accident on Interstate 880.

Authorities responded to the scene around 2:40 a.m., on the northbound lanes of the freeway near the off-ramp to State Route 262 and Mission Boulevard.

Officers say Good Samaritans of a Mitsubishi, a man and a woman, pulled over to assist another single-vehicle crash involving a Chevrolet.
