A 21-year-old Mendocino man riding a skateboard was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver at a Mendocino intersection last week.

On Monday, Mendocino County Sheriff's Office identified him as Calum Taite Pulido.

Details of the 10:50 p.m. incident Thursday night were scant Saturday.

The victim had been riding his skateboard westbound on Little Lake Road toward the intersection with Highway 1 in the coastal village when a northbound driver struck him upon reaching the intersection, CHP said.

The driver was gone by the time officers responded.

It’s not clear if there were witnesses, but the CHP said Saturday that it had impounded a silver Toyota Tundra pickup in connection with the crash. However the driver remained at large.

Any witnesses are asked to call the CHP’s Ukiah office at 707-467-4420.
