Mother, Young Kids Hurt In Pittsburg Hit & Run; Suspect Arrested
PITTSBURG (CBS SF) – A man was arrested after allegedly plowing into a mother and her two young children at a crosswalk in Pittsburg on Monday evening and then fleeing the scene, police said Tuesday.
Officers responded around 5:45 p.m. to reports of a hit-and-run collision involving pedestrians near the intersection of Crestview Drive and Leland Road, Pittsburg police Lt. Ron Raman said.
Police located the victims, a 29-year-old woman walking with her 1-year-old in a stroller and her 7-year-old daughter on a bicycle, Raman said.
All three were transported to a hospital for injuries that are not considered life-threatening. Both children have since been released but the woman remained in the hospital this morning for observation, the lieutenant said.
Using multiple witness descriptions of the vehicle and driver—the car’s only occupant—police quickly located the suspect car just a few blocks away.
A short time later, officers found the driver, identified as 24-year-old Pittsburg man Noe Delgado.
Delgado was arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run and was taken to county jail in Martinez, where he is being held on $50,000 bail.
Raman said investigators do not believe that alcohol was a factor in the collision and police are still trying to determine how fast the suspect was driving at the time of the crash.
