The Sonoma County Sheriff’s office has identified a pedestrian who died in a collision with a vehicle in Santa Rosa Thursday night as Noah Stepanoff, 45, of Santa Rosa.
Police responded at 8:07 p.m. to the collision after they received a call from a “hysterical” driver who said she struck a pedestrian at A Street near the westbound off-ramp to Third Street near the Santa Rosa Plaza, police Sgt. Josh Ludtke said. The caller said the pedestrian was trapped under the vehicle.
Police and Santa Rosa Fire Department medical personnel responded and removed the pedestrian from under the vehicle, a burgundy Nissan Maxima. The driver’s name has not been released.
The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation. There is no indication she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and it is unclear where Stepanoff was in the road when the collision occurred, Ludtke said.
Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call Officer Mike Mieger at (707) 3636.
