On Saturday night, September 12th, an auto-pedestrian collision in the Natomas community of northwestern Sacramento, California, left a man injured. The accident report disclosed the name of the victim as 21-year-old Austin Dubinetskiy.
The report disclosed that a car doing donuts struck and ran over the victim after he stepped out from the crowd and walked directly in front of the vehicle for unknown reasons. It happened around 10 p.m. near North Freeway Boulevard and Target.
Dubinetskiy sustained severe injuries and was unconscious when witnesses rushed him to the hospital. He reportedly sustained internal bleeding, a broken pelvis, and multiple fractures around his body.
The driver involved fled the accident scene and is still at large. Anyone with information on the occurrence should contact the Sacramento Police on the listed line. The investigation remains active.
When an accident occurs, those involved, especially the person seemingly at fault, become rattled, and it elicits a flight or fight response in them. Under the California Vehicle Code, a person involved in an accident — whether he or she contributed to it or not — should stop at the scene or the nearest possible place where traffic won’t get impeded and return to the crash site.
The person should check to see if there is injury, either minor, severe, or fatal, or property damage and call 911 to make a report. He or she should render help to anyone with an injury, wait for the first responders to arrive, and provide his or her contact, driver’s license, or insurance information to the damaged property owner.
