1 min read

An East Bay street racer allegedly left his critically injured passenger after crashing on Interstate-580 in Livermore. 

California Highway Patrol officers seek public help to identify the street racer who crashed on the busy interstate on Sunday, around 5:32 p.m. 

The CHP also attempts to identify a second passenger who fled and abandoned the victim. 

Before the crash, dispatchers with the CHP Golden Gate Communication Center began receiving 911 calls reporting a tan-colored Chevrolet Camaro racing on I-580 westbound near North Livermore Avenue. 

When CHP officers arrived at the scene, they found a deceased passenger. 

“This crash was determined to be a solo hit-and-run, with the driver and a second passenger fleeing the scene,” the CHP wrote.

Investigators believe the victim and two men had been inside the Toyota Camry when it crashed. The driver and second passenger had serious head injuries, self-extricated from the Toyota and were picked up by a white SUV. 

“The driver and passenger were described as Hispanic male adults, in their thirties. Both occupants fled the scene prior to CHP arrival,” the CHP wrote.

The CHP is asking for help identifying the two men who fled from the scene and the white SUV driver. 

If you or someone you know has information regarding this incident, call the Dublin CHP office at 925-828-0466.
