On April 13, 2019, at approximately 1:06 p.m., Merced California Highway Patrol units responded to a call of a female lying face down on the grass-dirt shoulder of southbound State Route Highway 99, south of South Avenue in Delhi.
The female victim, later identified as 30-year-old Nicole Stefanie Newbold from Modesto, was pronounced deceased by Riggs paramedics.
The investigation has determined that Newbold was involved in a hit and run collision. Units at the scene discovered a broken passenger side mirror matching a 2006-2009 model Honda Civic.
The passenger side mirror has a black outer casing. It is possible that the Honda Civic has damage to the passenger side windshield and/or passenger side “A” pillar.
The California Highway Patrol is looking for assistance with identifying the Honda Civic and the driver involved in this fatal collision.
