2 Hurt in Walnut Creek DUI: Lemongrass Farms Family

Pedestrian injured in hit-and-run collision in Oakland. One arrested.

Walnut Creek, CA (June 14, 2024) In a terrible series of events, a 33-year-old man seriously injured two women in Walnut Creek, CA.

The incident happened early in the morning on June 2. At about 5:15 a.m., vendors from the weekly Walnut Creek Farmer’s Market were setting up their stations. The farmer’s market is located on Locust Street, right between Lacassie and Cole Avenue.

It should have been just like any other day. Instead, as vendors were getting everything ready for the market, a man suddenly plowed his car through them. He did not stop. He continued driving for another mile, and police saw him trying to get on Interstate 680 when they caught up to him close to Lawrence Avenue.
