Hester was crossing the street in McClellan Business Park on the way to a dental appointment with his wife, Deborah Hester, when the car raced towards the Citrus Heights couple.

The man reportedly pushed his wife out of harm’s way but instead was hit by the Tacoma. Paramedics responded to the site and pronounced Hester dead at the scene.

Meanwhile, CHP affirmed that Beasley did not stop to render aid and continued onto Watt Avenue. Officers found his vehicle at a lot in Rio Linda with damage to its right front end.

The Antelope man was later arrested on suspicion of felony manslaughter. Authorities took him to Sacramento County jail with a bail set at $75,000.
