 Major Dixon Hit-and-Run Causes Injury

Four Injured in Hit-and-Run Crash

On Wednesday, July 5, 2017, an alleged hit-and-run collision left one individual with major traumatic injuries and three others, including a 4-month-old infant boy, with minor injuries. 

What Caused the Accident?

California Highway Patrol (CHP) Officer David Harvey indicated to reporters that the crash occurred at about 1 a.m. on the westbound section of Highway Interstate 80 only a short distance east of Pitt School Road.

Harvey reported that the accident happened when Vasil Georgiev, of Concord, had been driving a gray-colored 2014 Toyota Tundra pickup truck in the second lane next to a blue-colored sedan that was in the third lane. The sedan reportedly entered the second lane for reasons that are not currently known and struck the backside of the pickup truck.

Overturning

Harvey indicated that the collision with the sedan caused the truck to overturn multiple times. Reports noted that, while the vehicle was rolling, Yoana Taseva, a 31-year-old resident of Concord, was ejected from the vehicle along with the infant boy.

After rolling over multiple times, the vehicle eventually came to a stop on the right-hand shoulder of the highway.

Hit-and-Run

Witnesses of the collision told CHP that the sedan veered away from the pickup after striking it and collided with the center median. After this, the vehicle reportedly drove off toward Vacaville, fleeing the site of the accident.

Injuries

When emergency medical responders arrived at the collision, they found that Taseva had suffered major injuries. She was immediately rushed to the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Vacaville for emergency treatment. The specific nature of her injuries was not reported and no updates are currently available regarding her condition.

The three other occupants of the vehicle, Georgiev, the infant, and a 5-year-old boy, were all also taken to the Vacaville hospital and treated for injuries that officials reported were minor.

Call to Action

CHP has asked that anybody who may have information about this collision call their non-emergency number, 800-TELL-CHP. Harvey noted that Officer Gonzalez is handling the investigation and that any information about the accident would be highly appreciated.

Hit-and-Run Collisions

Hit-and-run accidents can leave those involved unsure of what to do. People hurt in hit-and-run accidents are sometimes even reluctant to receive medical attention because they don’t know if anyone will be able to be held accountable for the cost of their treatment. However, getting appropriate medical attention is always a good idea. Not only is your health and wellbeing a priority, but not receiving treatment can affect the value of your case later on.
