Richard Cordova, a 19-year-old from Pleasanton, was injured and the only one found at the scene. Sgt. Michael Collins said it was likely the same person, who goes by Chris, arrested in July for allegedly beating a teen at a house party. Cordova was taken to ValleyCare Medical Center and identified 18-year-old Dillon Costello of Pleasanton as the driver.
Police later questioned Costello and discovered injuries consistent with the crash when he reportedly came to the hospital to see Cordova. Costello allegedly refused to comment on his involvement in the incident, but he and Cordova were arrested and booked at Santa Rita Jail for felony vehicle theft. Cordova also had four outstanding no-bail warrants for which he was booked.
A police report said it was unknown if drugs or alcohol were factors.
Witnesses or anyone with information regarding the case should call Officer Bob Leong at 931-5100 (case 08-09231).
