Vehicle Responsible for Oroville Fatal Hit-and-Run Found; Search for Driver Continues

 
OROVILLE, CA (April 19, 2018) – A hit-and-run collision claimed the life of a man, on Thursday afternoon. Officers later identified the victim as 47-year-old Carlos Gonzales.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, the collision happened around 1:30 PM near the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and Lower Wyandotte Road. Gonzales and his brother were working on their property’s landscape when a vehicle came driving down from Foothill Boulevard and struck the victim.
 
The driver rushed to escape the scene, but witnesses were able to get information on the vehicle’s physical appearance. It is believed to be a grey/ silver mid-2000’s Dodge pickup truck, and is expected to have sustained major damage to its right side.
 
Aside from hitting the victim, it also slammed into the surrounding infrastructure resulting in damaged power lines. The PG&E crew arrived on the scene to evaluate and repair the damage done by the vehicle.
 
On Friday, the Butte County District Attorney’s Office contacted the CHP to let them know that the driver wanted to surrender the vehicle responsible for the incident. Detectives immediately went to the known area where the vehicle owner might be staying and found the vehicle. After their inspection, they determined that it was indeed the vehicle responsible for the hit-and-run collision. However, they have not located the driver yet.
 
The California Highway Patrol is encouraging witnesses or anyone with relevant information to contact them at (530) 332-1200.


We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Carlos Gonzales. May he rest in peace.
