Police Investigate a Fatal Hit-And-Run Crash on 79th Avenue in Oakland

Oakland, CA (July 9, 2021)– Thursday night, a 33-year-old motorcyclist died after he crashed on 79th Avenue with two vehicles, including one that fled the scene. 

The fatal crash in Oakland happened at about 10:11 p.m. on July 8, at the intersection of 79th Avenue and International Boulevard.

Police said the motorcyclist headed westbound on International Boulevard at high speed when a white Pontiac Vibe SUV traveled southbound on 79th Avenue stopped at a posted stop sign, then made a left turn onto International Boulevard.

Then the motorcyclist collided with the Pontiac, causing him to lose control, and swerved into the eastbound lanes.

The motorcyclist then collided again with a Nissan Rogue and ejected onto the pavement.

However, the Pontiac’s driver immediately fled the scene.

Meanwhile, the Nissan driver remained at the scene and helped the motorcyclist before police and paramedics arrived. 

EMS then took the motorcyclist to a hospital, but he later died.

Further, police said it is not known if drugs or alcohol were factors in the incident.
