Update: Man Killed By Pickup On Highway 273 Identified

A pedestrian who died after being struck by a pickup truck between Redding and Anderson Saturday night has been identified by the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office as 41-year-old Carl Timothy Smith of Anderson. The driver of the pickup, 66-year-old Clarence O’Dell of Redding, told the CHP that Smith jumped into the roadway in front of him as he was driving southbound on Highway 273 a little north of Metz Road. O’Dell hit his brakes but apparently could not avoid hitting Smith, who was declared dead at the scene. Family has been notified and a post-mortem exam is scheduled. The CHP is still investigating.
