CHP looking for driver to help with fatal collision investigation
The Auburn Area California Highway Patrol office is looking for any possible witnesses who may have seen a blue sedan traveling at about 6:20 p.m. on Sunset Boulevard West on May 25. The blue sedan was seen traveling eastbound on Sunset Boulevard near Amoruso Way at the time skateboarder Justin Grich, 18, from Roseville, was riding his skateboard in the middle of the traffic lanes and swerved directly into the path of a vehicle traveling westbound. Grich was struck by this vehicle and later succumbed to his injuries. According to one of the involved parties, the driver of the blue sedan may have also seen the skateboarder in the roadway and may have information that could assist the CHP in this investigation. The driver of the blue sedan did not stop at the scene after the collision and continued eastbound on Sunset Boulevard West. No further description of the vehicle or driver was obtained. If anyone has any information that could assist in identifying the blue sedan or driver, contact the Auburn CHP Office at (916) 663-3344.
