Vallejo police in talks with driver possibly linked to hit-and-run

Vallejo police have tracked down at least one person believed to be at the scene of a hit and run car accident Monday afternoon.

According to witnesses and police, a 54-year-old Vallejo man was crossing Broadway at Hogan Avenue in a crosswalk Monday around 5:19 p.m. when he was struck by one or two vehicles believed to be racing each other at a high speed. The two vehicles left the scene without stopping, witnesses told police.

As the investigation was still in a very preliminary stage Tuesday afternoon, it was not immediately clear if the contacted person actually hit the victim, or was allegedly speed racing a second car who hit the victim, police Lt. Sid DeJesus said.

DeJesus said police were talking with a person potentially involved in the incident after officers conducted a traffic stop on a car matching witnesses' descriptions. The person, however, allegedly admitted to being at the scene during the accident, DeJesus said.

The victim remained in grave condition Tuesday, and has been flown to John Muir Medical Center for treatment, DeJesus said.

really??? vallejo is investigating something finally?? wow. I remember when they let that guy go for "accidently" running over and killing the lady on tennessee street a few years ago, and he was under the influence but the cops knew his family and were chummy with them, and said not to worry it was an accident but never did they test him for marijuana or alcohol, which he had been taking that day. also my son was stabbed in hand and police didnt believe him , they thought he did it himself, oh , we live in M.ville just for the record. no crime going on there is there.......
