    OAKLAND — An Albany man who was allegedly driving with a suspended license for a prior DUI conviction has been charged with murdering a woman and seriously injuring three of her loved ones in a head-on, wrong-way collision on Highway 24, court records show. Elias Angel Rivera, 34, was charged with murder, drunk driving, driving on a suspended license, and driving under the influence, causing injuries, with priors, according to court records. The charges stem from an early morning May 21 crash that killed 30-year-old Heidi Gerrish, a Tuscon, Arizona resident, and injured her partner, her brother, and her sister-in-law, who all required surgery. The California Highway Patrol alleges that Rivera got on westbound Highway 24 driving east and drove his Mercedes into a 2012 Mazda containing Gerrish and the three other victims. Gerrish, a passenger, died before emergency responders got there, police say. The crash was reported a little before 2 a.m., police say. Rivera allegedly ran from the area after the crash. Police located and arrested him a little before 3 a.m., near 54th Street and Shattuck Avenue,...
    Zuma Press. This story was originally published by Undark and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. Last December, a young patient was admitted to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, after several medications had failed to quell the child’s relentless seizures. A hospital pediatrician, Vignesh Doraiswamy, consulted with neurologists and then tried a different drug. The child had fewer seizures, became more interactive, and was ready to go back home, says Doraiswamy. But there was a problem: The patient’s insurance company refused to authorize the new medication for the parents to administer. The family had to remain in the hospital for at least two more days, Doraiswamy recalls, while the decision went through an appeals process. Doctors have long asserted that prior authorization—the need to get approval from the patient’s insurer before proceeding with treatment—causes delays that can hurt patient care. In an American Medical Association survey conducted in December 2021, one-third of physicians reported that such delays have caused at least one of their patients to experience a serious problem, such as hospitalization, the development of a birth defect, disability, and...
    ELK GROVE (CBS13) – The wrong-way driver accused of a DUI in a head-on crash that killed Elk Grove Police Officer Tyler Lenehan has a history of drunk driving offenses. Jermaine Walton, 31, was arrested after Friday’s crash along Hwy. 99 in South Sacramento and was hit with several charges, including DUI and murder. READ MORE: 'You Take Your Chances': Several Cars Stripped Of Catalytic Converters At Sacramento Airport Economy LotIn 2017, Walton was arrested for DUI and driving with a blood-alcohol level of over 0.08 percent. He was ordered to jail time, work project time, and mandatory classes — but never completed them. “The public record shows he didn’t’ really do those things,” said Sacramento attorney Mark Reichel. So why was Walton legally allowed to drive? One of the 2017 charges was dismissed. The one that stuck was a misdemeanor. “For all first offender DUIs, you have a complete blackout where you can’t drive for 30 days and then another three to six months where you have a restricted license,” Reichel said. Walton was still on probation for the...

    RICHMOND — A South San Francisco man has been sentenced to 45 years to life in prison for killing a married couple in a wrong-way collision on Interstate 80. Michael Verette, 31, was convicted in August of murdering Tyra Ann Chappell, 52, of American Canyon, and Frederic Chappell, 76, of Vallejo, in the December 2019 collision. Both victims were in a 2000 Toyota pickup truck heading east on Interstate 80 when a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer going west on the Appian Way exit slammed into them, according to the California Highway Patrol. According to authorities, Verette was headed eastbound on I-80 when he sped past a California Highway Patrol car, then reversed its course and got back on I-80 going west, exiting at Appian Way. He allegedly told a passenger he wasn’t going back to jail. The charging records said Verette racked up 11 prior convictions for driving with a suspended or revoked license, all in 2013 and 2014. Deputy district attorney Derek Butts, who prosecuted the case, said Judge Charles Bowen noted the need to dissuade others from dangerous driving...
    Police arrested a Detroit pastor on Wednesday, and the pastor was charged with attempted murder for allegedly crashing his car into the vehicle of two sheriff’s deputies, ABC 7 reported. Pastor David Jones was allegedly inebriated when police encountered him in his car outside of a convenience store off of I-75, ABC 7 reported. Police said that after refusing to cooperate, Jones accelerated across the highway, entering a parking lot where his car collided with the back of a building. “He struck their building, turned his vehicle towards deputies, accelerated, smashing our patrol car,” Arena County Undersheriff Don McIntyre told ABC 7. “If you turn your vehicle around and intentionally collide with a police vehicle, you are going to be charged with attempted murder on police.” Arena County Undersheriff Don McIntyre (Screenshot / ABC 7) Police said Jones refused to exit his vehicle even after the crash, leading the officers to break the car windows and wrestle with Jones to get him out of the car, ABC 7 reported.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Family and friends are asking for officials and the public to help with the search for Keegan Oyugi, a recent college graduate and basketball player who has been missing for nearly two weeks. Oyugi, 26, was last seen leaving the Prior Lake area on June 12 at around 4:30 a.m., heading home to St. Bonifacius. He was driving a red Ford Mustang with Kansas plates at the time of his disappearance. Credit: Minnetrista Public Safety Department He lived and worked in the community near Crown College, where he graduated two years ago. He was a star basketball player and still worked for the college’s program. On Wednesday morning, Oyugi’s family and community leaders gathered outside the Minnetrista Police Department, pleading that his case be moved to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, an agency with more resources than the department that serves their small community. Oyugi’s parents, who came up from Wichita, Kansas for the search say it is unusual for him not to be in contact with them. The little brother of 26 year old Keegan Oyugi pleads...
    A California appeals court upheld the murder conviction against a Concord man who, in 2017, head-on collided with an oncoming car while driving under the influence, killing a 21-year-old woman. Bo Robledo, 36, was convicted of murder and drunk driving in 2019 and sentenced to life without the chance for parole for 22 years. Authorities say Robledo was driving drunk to a store to buy more alcohol when he swerved out of his lane on Willow Pass Road in Concord and collided with a car containing 21-year-old Natalie Davies and her boyfriend. Davies was killed and her boyfriend suffered permanent serious injuries. Robledo’s blood alcohol level was calculated at .22, nearly three times the legal limit. In the 15-page decision — issued last month by the First District Appellate Court — three judges unanimously ruled that the trial court hadn’t violated Robledo’s rights by disallowing an expert on cocaine intoxication from testifying and by including details from Robledo’s two prior drunk driving convictions. Robledo’s two prior drunk driving convictions spanned back 11 years before the crash. In one of them,...
