According to the Richmond P.D. the hit & run accident on Amend that occurred on Thursday, March 12th at approximately 3:00 p.m. was the first of two hit & run accidents that day caused by the same driver of a Suburban at approximately the same time. However, the R.P.D. was first notified about the second accident that occurred on Valley View and Morningside Dr. and did not learn about the first one on Amend until several hours later. A witness to the Valley View accident took the license plate number and followed the driver to his residence on San Pablo Dam Rd.. Due to an 11 year old in the vehicle the Richmond Police performed a felony arrest of the driver on suspicion of D.U.I.. It wasn't until after 7:00 that evening that the R.P.D. investigators arrived on the scene on Amend to assess the damage and have the car removed. On behalf of the Richmond Police Department, Officer A. Dejesus apologized to all parties for the confusion that day, adding that in his 20 years of service he has never seen anything like this.
