CONCORD (AP) — Authorities have detained a man sought in a hit-and-run collision in Concord that killed two young boys and sent their mother and an infant to the hospital with major injuries.
The California Highway Patrol said they located 35-year-old Lemuel Sirvonn Wilson, Jr. on Saturday and detained him for questioning.
He was named a person of interest after the driver of an Infiniti sedan struck the back of a Dodge Durango on an on-ramp to State Route 4 Friday night.
The CHP said the impact was so severe, the boys, ages 5 and 10, were thrown from the SUV and the Infiniti was catapulted over a fence.
Witnesses told investigators a man with blood on his head and face abandoned the Infiniti and ran across the highway.
The East Bay Times reports (http://bayareane.ws/2su6SNf ) a 3-week-old boy sustained serious head injuries and the mother, a 35-year-old San Pablo woman, suffered neck injuries.
