SAN JOSE (KCBS) – San Jose police have arrested a suspect in a fatal hit and run collision on Sunday night.

25-year-old San Jose resident Christopher Uchicua turned himself into police on Wednesday. “He did turn himself in and they did bring the case over to the DA’s office and they did in fact file the felony hit and run,” said San Jose police spokeswoman Sgt. Heather Randol.

It was on August 17, just before 10:00 p.m. when police responded to the area of Senter Road and Balfour Drive on a report of a traffic collision. They found 51-year-old Son Hoang Nguyen of San Jose suffering from injuries. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead the next morning.

The neighborhood was the scene of another hit-and-run collision on Monday night, when a driver struck a pedestrian at Senter Road and Oldham Drive.

In that case, the female driver fled the scene, but returned about two hours later and was taken into custody by police on suspicion of hit and run.

The death of the 51-year-old Nguyen was San Jose’s 11th pedestrian death involving a vehicle in 2014.
