Friends and family of a young woman killed by a suspected DUI driver on N. Main Street in Walnut Creek early Saturday morning are leaving tributes in her memory at the crash site.
Family members identified Maricarmen Leon of Discovery Bay as the young woman killed in the early morning crash, which also left a male companion severely injured. Family members said the pair had been patronizing a local bar when Leon called a cousin for a ride, stepping outside with her friend.
The pair were walking on the east sidewalk of N. Main Street near Pine Street when a pickup truck driven by a 28-year-old Concord woman ran up on the sidewalk and struck them. Leon was pronounced deceased at the scene.
