OAKLAND -- Authorities in the East Bay have identified the two victims who died in.
Just before 10 a.m. Sunday morning, the victims' vehicle was traveling south on 73rd Avenue and attempted to make a left turn onto Holly Street. A Lexus that had reportedly been stolen in Daly City was traveling northbound on 73rd Avenue at a high rate of speed and collided with the passenger side of the victims' vehicle, causing the victims' car to roll over and collide with a parked vehicle.
and a third person who was riding in the rear of the vehicle, a 48-year-old man from Richmond, was taken to the hospital with injuries.
The Alameda County Coroner on Monday identified the driver as 64-year-old Derrick Shaw of Richmond, and the passenger as 67-year-old Vera Hampton of Antioch.
The stolen Lexus sustained major damage to its front end, and the suspect -- a 25-year-old Oakland man -- allegedly got out of the car and fled on foot. He was later arrested by Oakland police on suspicion of the fatal hit-and-run. It is not known if alcohol or drugs were a contributing factor to the collision.
Anyone with information connected to the case is asked to contact the Oakland Police Department Traffic Investigation Unit at (510) 777-8570.
