The California Highway Patrol arrested the man suspected of being involved with the Wednesday night hit and run that left two people dead and one seriously injured. The CHP received word early Friday morning that the suspect, Valentino Alvarez of Sacramento, was being treated at the Kaiser in South Sacramento. He was arrested and charged with two counts of vehicular manslaughter, three counts of hit-and-run and one count of unlicensed driving.
Alvarez’s grandmother and his father’s girlfriend were killed in the crash and his father was seriously injured and had to have his hand amputated, Alvarez was driving the car that crashed into the back of a tractor trailer, causing the car to flip over multiple times and crash into a fence. He ran from the scene and was eventually given a ride to a family member’s house where he later disappeared until seeking medical treatment early Friday morning.
