Late Tuesday, a family was involved in a terrible accident in Oakland involving a hit-and-run driver. The accident occurred around 9:00 p.m. near 35th Avenue and Paxton Avenue. The family in the Toyota Corolla was hit by an SUV and the female driver was driving a 9-year-old, 8-year-old and 10-year-old. They were all transported to the hospital and are listed as critical condition. Reports have confirmed that the nine-year-old has succumbed to their injuries.
According to ABC Seven News, the men inside of the SUV fled the scene after the two cars collided. The Police have yet to confirm if the driver of the Toyota was the mother of all three children.
