59-Year-Old Man Struck by Car and Died on North A Street near North 16th and Ahern Streets
SACRAMENTO, CA (March 5, 2018) – A man died in a pedestrian collision on North A Street after harassing a stranger who struck him with her car, early Monday morning.
Officer Linda Matthew of the Sacramento Police Department stated that 59-year-old Tyrone McGoughy approached a woman in her parked car on North A Street between North 16th and Ahern streets shortly after 2:00 AM. He demanded a ride and he began assaulting her through the driver’s side window when she refused.
The woman drove away in her car with McGoughy hanging onto it outside. She crashed into a parked car which caused it to lift up, and her stow-away passenger rolled under the elevated vehicle. By the time police arrived at around 2:45 AM, Sacramento Fire Department medical professionals had pronounced McGoughy dead. The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigators. She was not injured nor arrested.
The Sacramento Police Department is urging any witnesses to call the dispatch center at (916) 264-5471 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at (916) 443-4357 or submit an anonymous tip using the free “P3 Tips” smartphone app. Callers may provide information anonymously and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
