By Lt. John VanderKlugt, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau Commander
On Thursday, February 14, 2013 at approximately 6:42 pm, Antioch Police Officers we dispatched to an auto versus pedestrian collision at the intersection of Hillcrest Avenue and Hidden Glen Drive. Upon arrival officers discovered that a 14 year-old female was struck by a vehicle while attempting to cross the street at the above intersection. The female juvenile was air lifted to an area hospital and later died from her injuries. The involved driver, along with several witnesses, remained at the scene and provided accounts of the incident to police. This investigation is on-going but preliminary indications are that alcohol and or speed DO NOT seem to be contributing factors to this collision.
This preliminary information is made available by the Field Services Bureau. Further inquiries into the status of this case should be done via the Media Access Telephone Line (925) 779-6874. If you have information regarding this case you may text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using the key word ANTIOCH.
