Fatal Elk Grove Hit-and-Run

I’m Ed Smith, an Elk Grove auto accident attorney. Two men were arrested on the morning of Monday, December 5, 2016 for having involvement in a single-vehicle crash that left a young man dead in Elk Grove.

What Happened?

The driver of an SUV was driving along West Stockton Boulevard on the evening of Sunday, December 4, 2016. The driver, identified as 23-year-old Ernesto Bizaran-Guzman, crashed his SUV shortly before 6:00 pm through a fence at the 9300 block of West Stockton Boulevard. The SUV then came to a rest on the shoulder of Highway 99 in the vicinity of the Laguna Boulevard exit.

Crash Fatally Injures Passenger

When authorities arrived to the scene of the crash, they discovered a crashed SUV with a seriously injured passenger with “obvious signs of trauma“. As a result the passenger was pronounced deceased at the scene. Authorities believed that when the SUV overturned as it left the roadway, the crash caused the passenger to be ejected. The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office later identified the victim as 21-year-old Juan Pablo Guzman from Elk Grove.

We extend our condolences to the family of the young man that lost his life in this tragic accident.

Hit and Run Suspects Detained

Ernesto Bizaran-Guzman and the other passenger in the vehicle, 19-year-old Jose Guzman, fled from the scene after the automobile accident. Bizaran-Guzman and Guzman were later found and detained by authorities. Bizaran-Guzman and Guzman were booked into the Sacramento County Jail on a felony hit-and-run charge. According to the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, both men are each being held liable for a $75,000 bond.

Hit and Run Accidents 

Hit and run accidents have been significantly increasing in the United States over the years. The state of California has been facing a dramatic increase as well. The greatest percentage of motorists that have fled from a fatal accident scene occur in California. Hit and run accidents can be stressful due to the associated medical expenses and property damage. It is best to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to defend your rights in a hit and run accident.
