A 17 year old Concord teen (name withheld due to age) lost control of his SUV early Sunday morning, killing 41 year old Solaiman Nuri and his 9 year old daughter Hadessa as they rode their bicycles.
The teen was released from the Martinez juvenile hall around 4:40 PM, and was reportedly driven out through a back gate by his parents, with permission from officials.
Due to the lack of information with regards to what the teen was doing at the time the accident occurred, he will not be formally charged for several weeks as the investigation continues. It has not yet been determined whether alcohol or cell phone use was a factor in the accident. Whether his two counts of vehicular manslaughter are felonies or just misdemeanors hangs heavily on the outcome of the investigation.
As of yet, the prosecutors are without a recommendation. Police are reviewing evidence and witness statements to make certain the nature of the incident.
