Martinez, California – A 22-year-old man from Oregon has been charged by the Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office with a two-count felony complaint centering on a deadly crash that occurred in Concord on April 7th.

Jesus Ivan Dorantes Guzman faces charges of a felony hit-and-run that resulted in the death or serious injury of another. He is also charged with child abuse for putting a minor in a situation that caused her death. The child abuse charge comes with a special allegation of great bodily injury.

The circumstances of the incident occurred around 5:20 am on April 7th. Dorantes Guzman was driving a vehicle with multiple passengers when he crashed on Northbound Interstate 680 at California State Route 242 in Concord. The vehicle overturned in a dirt area near the freeway.

The crash injured five individuals – three of whom are minors – and killed a 9-year-old girl.

Dorantes Guzman fled the scene on foot after the crash. Days later, he was found by police officers in the City of Williams – which is in Colusa County.

Dorantes Guzman is currently in the Martinez Detention Facility and will be arraigned on the charges in Contra Costa County Superior Court in Martinez on April 15th at 1:30 pm.

His bail has been set at $1,000,000.
