One person is dead following a hit-and-run accident that took place in west Boise late Wednesday night.
About 11:15 p.m., Boise Police officers responded to a call of an injury accident near West Fairview and North Shamrock Avenues.
Officers learned a vehicle traveling eastbound on Fairview had struck a man and his vehicle which was stopped in the lane of travel. “The vehicle was parked without any lights on and the victim was struck as he stood outside the vehicle,” said a BPD news release.
The driver of the vehicle that hit the victim stopped at the scene and is cooperating with investigators.
“However, the victim was subsequently struck by two additional vehicles that did not stop and left the scene,” the release stated.
Abdulaziz Alenezi, 20, of Boise was pronounced dead shortly after police arrived.
One of the vehicles that left the scene is described as an early 2000’s Pontiac Grand Am or a Pontiac Grand Prix that is blue or purple in color. The vehicle should also have front-end damage and it’s missing a front fog light.
The second vehicle is described as a red Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck.
