APD officers arrived and found there was a vehicle collision with injuries at the intersection.

A Contra Costa Fire Inspector had a 19-year-old male from Hayward detained. The fire inspector believed the 19-year-old male was attempting to flee the scene of the collision on foot.

It was learned the fire inspector was traveling southbound on G Street when the 19-year-old male passed him illegally. A 41-year-old female from Antioch was pulling off of West 14th Street when the 19-year-old struck her broadside. The 41-year-old female was transported to a local hospital for injuries sustained in the collision. A 19-year-old Antioch male who was a passenger in the responsible vehicle was also transported to a local hospital for complaint of pain. The 19-year-old male from Hayward was issued a citation for illegal passing and speed violations and was released on his signed promise to appear in court.
