Hit And Run Driver Brings Samaritan, Moraga PD On The Run Sunday

SHARE

In a busy day for Moraga police, officers called out to help investigate the death of a man found dead inside a home on Hetfield Place were called on again after receiving reports of an individual who had collided with at least one other car on Rimer Drive.

Officers responding to neighborhood calls of a person driving badly in the area just after 6 p.m. Sunday were informed that the driver had possibly hit another car near Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School and that a citizen was giving chase.

That citizen, as yet unidentified, apparently chased the individual to the parking lot at St. Monica’s parish, across the street from the school. Moraga police detained the individual there, eventually transporting him to the hospital where he was placed under observation on a psychiatric hold.
