Jose Garcia Arrested after Salinas Pedestrian Accident on Stone Street

Salinas, California (January 22, 2020) - 63-year-old Jose Garcia has been arrested after an alleged hit-and-run pedestrian collision that left two women with severe injuries Monday last week in Salinas.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the accident took place on January 13, at about 9:00 a.m. at 22 Stone Street, in front of Sacred Heart Church.

Authorities said a 68-year-old woman and a 90-year-old woman were crossing Stone Street to get St. Vincent De Paul food pantry located at the church when they were struck by a silver Chevrolet Suburban. Garcia was driving his Chevrolet north at the time.

The two women were taken to Natividad Medical Center with serious injuries. The 90-year-old woman was listed in a critical but stable condition at the hospital while the other woman was released from the hospital.

The patient’s names and their current condition were not immediately provided.

Garcia did not stop to assist the women but he fled onto West Market Street after the accident. Police later located and arrested Garcia on suspicion of driving without a license, hit-and-run causing injury and a probation violation with a bail set at $200,000.

The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information concerning this collision is asked to contact Salinas Police Department at (831) 758-7321 or submit anonymous tips at (831) 775-4222.

Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, Mr. Arin Khodaverdian believes that car accident claims are rarely straightforward regardless of the circumstances involved. “Liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim and it is crucial, therefore, to have an experienced attorney on your side,” He said.
