WE BEGIN WITH BREAKING NEWS. WE’RE BEGINNING WITH BREAKING NEWS FROM SACRAMENTO AND NORTH HIGHLANDS. THIS MORNING. ON THE LEFT YOU’VE GOT POLICE ON THE SCENE OF A HIT AND RUN THAT HAPPENED IN SACRAMENTO. AND ON THE RIGHT, AN EARLY MORNING FIRE WILL LEAVE A RESTAURANT IN NORTH HIGHLANDS CLOSED FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE. WE HAVE CREWS AT BOTH SCENES GATHERING DETAILS ABOUT THESE DEVELOPING STORIES. AND WE’RE GOING TO START WITH KCRA 3’S MIKE TESELLE. HE’S AT 16TH AND V STREETS, WHERE POLICE HAVE BLOCKED THE ROADS OFF TO INVESTIGATE THAT HIT AND RUN. YEAH, AND EVERYTHING BEHIND ME IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW. IF YOU ARE A COMMUTER COMING IN OFF OF THE W/X COMING NORTH ON 16TH STREET, AND THAT IS THAT 16TH STREET IS BLOCKED HERE AT V STREET RIGHT NOW FOR POLICE INVESTIGATION. STOCKTON POLICE DEPARTMENT SAYING THEY ARE INVESTIGATING A HIT AND RUN THAT HAPPENED EARLIER THIS MORNING. VICTIM TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL WITH SIGNIFICANT INJURIES. BUT THEIR EXACT CONDITION NOT UPDATED JUST YET. THE INTERESTING THING HERE IN TALKING TO INVESTIGATORS IS THERE’S NO ACTUAL CAR THAT WAS INVOLVED IN THIS HIT AND RUN AT THIS SCENE, AND THAT IS PART OF THIS INVESTIGATION AS POLICE ARE IN THE EARLY STAGES OF TRYING TO PIECE TOGETHER WHO MAY HAVE HIT THAT PEDESTRIAN HERE. BUT THE BIGGER THING, MORE IMMEDIATE THING FOR COMMUTERS IS THAT IF YOU USE 16TH STREET NORTH, COMING OFF OF THE FREEWAY, JUST KNOW THAT 16TH STREET IS BLOCKED. ALL LANES BLOCKED BY THIS POLICE ACTIVITY AND INVESTIGATION RIGHT NOW. SO YOU’LL HAVE TO DETOUR. AND I CAN TELL YOU JUST SITTING HERE OVER THE LAST HALF HOUR WATCHING PEOPLE EVEN BEFORE WE GET TO COMMUTE HOURS COMING DOWN 16TH STREET, ONE PERSON ALMOST DIDN’T EVEN SLOW DOWN UNTIL GETTING RIGHT UP TO THAT POLICE CAR BEHIND ME. IT WAS A LAST MINUTE, UH, HEAVY BRAKING. THAT CAR DID SO JUST PAY ATTENTION AND BE AWARE OF 16TH STREET BLOCKED AT V STREET RIGHT NOW HERE IN SACRAMENTO.
