From Danville PD Monday:

Danville Police investigators are seeking the driver of a vehicle involved in two separate hit and run incidents on Diablo Road that resulted in injuries to three cyclists.

Police Chief Allan Shields said the first incident occurred at approximately 1:20 p.m. Saturday afternoon. The victim reported that she was riding her bicycle westbound on Diablo Road near Alameda Diablo Road when she was struck by the vehicle, which then fled the scene. The victim suffered minor injuries and did not require hospitalization.

The second incident occurred at approximately 2:00 p.m. when two cyclists riding eastbound on Diablo Road near Clydesdale Drive were struck by a driver who fled. The two men suffered severe injuries in the crash and were hospitalized. One man was taken by CalStar helicopter to Eden Medical Center, the other transported by ambulance to John Muir Medical Center.

The description of the vehicle in both incidents was that of a silver or white Ford Escape. Further investigation has determined the vehicle was likely a 2005-2007 Ford Escape.

Danville Police are asking that anyone with information on this incident or the vehicle is encouraged to contact Lt. Doug Muse at (925) 314-3700 or dmuse@danville.ca.gov.


    • @GKleinart – We believe she did wait to get home before calling it in, Gunther, believing her injuries to be minor.
