DA to decide charges against teen driver who left crash scene

Father IDs driver as his son, refuses to say where he is

It's up to the Alameda County District Attorney's Office to decide if charges will be filed against a teen driver who left the scene of a fiery crash last week.

Police originally received a call to a rollover crash in the 3400 block of East Ruby Hill Drive at about 12:21 a.m. Oct. 17, according to Pleasanton police Sgt. Robert Leong.

On arriving, police found the car engulfed in flames, but no driver was in sight.

Leong said the initial report of a rollover was mistaken.

"It looks like it hit some kind of curb," he said. PG&E was called out there, some water folks were called out."

While police were on the scene, a man arrived and told them his 19-year-old son was the driver, but refused to give the teen's whereabouts.

Police received a call at about 6:40 a.m. the same morning, telling them the 19-year-old had returned to his home.
