Coroner identifies man killed in hit-and-run
A man killed in an apparent hit-and-run on U.S. Highway 101 in San Carlos Friday evening has been identified by the San Mateo County coroner’s office as 45-year-old John Hannon.
Hannon, of East Palo Alto, was walking near the southbound lanes close to Brittan Avenue at about 6:35 p.m. when he stumbled into the roadway and was struck by a white Toyota being driven by 36-year-old Sharon Oo, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Oo, a Union City resident, allegedly fled the scene but was arrested about an hour later in Redwood City, according to the CHP.
Investigators said it doesn’t appear as if she had alcohol in her system, but that Hannon might have been drinking an alcoholic beverage prior to the collision, according to the CHP.
