Police investigation has yet to bring up any concrete evidence in the case of the teen driver of the SUV that hit several bicyclists on April 7th in Concord, CA. Nine year old Hadessa and 41 year old Solaiman Nuri were killed outright in the crash, but Hadessa’s 12-year old sister left the scene with very minor injuries.
Toxicology tests are still underway, and investigators are still gathering witness accounts, examining physical evidence, and pulling cell phone records to discover just why the accident occurred. Prosecutors are taking their time with the investigation because they want to gather enough information to decide how to charge the teen. It is speculated that the case will be presented to the District Attorney’s Office in under two weeks.
A neighbor of Aborlando Drive in Walnut Creek suspects that the seventeen year old was one of the teens cited for alcohol possession a week prior during a party. It has been pointed out that the license plate of the white Escalade (March 31st alcohol possession incident) matches that of the white Escalade involved in the April 7th double fatality crash. Police are looking into this connection.
