Jacob Cady Detained for DUI Following Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Collision on Tehama Vina Road Near Highway 99
LOS MOLINOS, CA (December 20, 2018) – A male pedestrian was fatally struck by a DUI driver Monday evening on Tehama Vina Road near Highway 99.
When emergency personnel responded to the scene at 9:49 p.m., they determined that a male pedestrian was hit by a vehicle. The victim who remains unidentified died from his injuries at the scene; he was not carrying any identification.
A preliminary investigation led officers to believe that the man was walking his bicycle northbound from the Fast Track Gas Station parking lot. As the victim was crossing Tehama Vina Road, a 2003 Ford Excursion SUV attempted an unsafe turn from Highway 99 onto Tehama Vina Road and struck the pedestrian.
The driver left the scene but was later found by CHP officers and Tehama County sheriff’s deputies at the River Inn Trailer Park.
Jacob Henry Thomas Cady was the 25-year-old driver from Los Molinos who was believed to have been impaired during the pedestrian crash. He was subsequently arrested at his home and booked into Tehama County Jail.
