An 18 year-old Fresno resident was reportedly drunk when he got behind the wheel and hit and killed a 20 year-old man after a weekend party. The accident occurred in East Central Fresno near Shields and Armstrong streets.
Family members of both of the people involved said that the two did not know each other prior to the party on Saturday night.
Shawn Schulte, the pedestrian, had big plans after graduation from college. He had reportedly just got a job offer to work as a computer tech in Denmark and was excited for the future.
When he left the party, he was walking with his girlfriend, Christy Cabral, when he saw the lights of a truck approaching quickly. He shoved his girlfriend out of the way, but had no time to get himself out of the truck’s path.
The truck driver hesitated after hitting Schulte, but continued on without stopping.
Police caught up with him just two miles from the scene of the accident attempting to flee on foot.
The suspect is being held on charges of DUI, hit and run and vehicular manslaughter.
