Kelly Cass Hospitalized, Angel Huerta Involved in DUI Hit-and-Run Collision Near Auburn Boulevard and Charwood Lane
CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (January 3, 2019) – A woman is recovering after being struck by an alleged DUI hit-and-run motorist on Dec. 27 near Auburn Boulevard and Charwood Lane.
A GoFundMe page was created for Kelly Cass, to help raise funds for her recovery costs.
Kelly Cass was riding her skateboard Thursday near Auburn Boulevard and Charwood Lane when police say Angel Huerta struck her with his car. Cass reportedly went flying through his windshield and into the passenger seat where she was pleading for him to stop the car.
Huerta, however, kept driving until making it three miles away, where he abandoned the vehicle and ran off. Cass was able to contact 911 and, not too long after, Huerta was found by officers and arrested on suspicion of felony DUI, felony hit-and-run and kidnapping. He remains in jail with no bail option.
Cass is recovering at a hospital after having suffered from broken arms, shattered bones in her legs and a fractured neck.
