If you have information on the evil criminal who fled the scene of this accident please contact the Santa Cruz Police Department at (831) 420-5820.
On November 6, 2016, a UC Santa Cruz student from LA tragically passed away. She had been in the hospital since October 30, when she was hit by someone possibly driving a late model silver Honda CRV.
A news release stated that “Someone in our community knows that Honda CRV and the driver who would have traveled on Highway 1 around 1:55 a.m. on the day before Halloween”.
The driver in this accident fled the scene.
In accidents like this, there is no good reason to flee the scene. It is a crime and the driver is looking at prison time if captured. California Vehicle Code States:
20003. (a) The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to or death of any person shall also give his or her name, current residence address, the names and current residence addresses of any occupant of the driver’s vehicle injured in the accident, the registration number of the vehicle he or she is driving, and the name and current residence address of the owner to the person struck or the driver or occupants of any vehicle collided with, and shall give the information to any traffic or police officer at the scene of the accident. The driver also shall render to any person injured in the accident reasonable assistance, including transporting, or making arrangements for transporting, any injured person to a physician, surgeon, or hospital for medical or surgical treatment if it is apparent that treatment is necessary or if that transportation is requested by any injured person. (b) Any driver or injured occupant of a driver’s vehicle subject to the provisions of subdivision (a) shall also, upon being requested, exhibit his or her driver’s license, if available, or, in the case of an injured occupant, any other available identification,to the person struck or to the driver or occupants of any vehicle collided with, and to any traffic or police officer at the scene of the accident.
This is NOT necessarily what the vehicle looks like, which has damage on the front bumper, but this IS a 2010 silver Honda CRV:
