    OAKLAND — A Bay Area man was sentenced to six years in state prison after accepting a plea deal in a case where prosecutors accused him of taking a woman from San Francisco to Oakland and sexually assaulting her, court records show. Zachery Rideaux Jr., 30, pleaded no contest to forcible rape and was sentenced in an October court hearing in Alameda County, records show. He was transferred last month to North Kern State Prison to begin serving the sentence. He received 526 days worth of credit for time served in jail and can reduce his prison term by 15 percent with good behavior. At the hearing where Rideaux was sentenced, Judge Andrew Steckler noted that Rideaux had told a probation officer the charges were “(expletive) fake” and that, “I know I’m innocent this time,” and asked Rideaux if he had any reservations about the plea deal. “I just want to take my deal and move forward with my life,” Rideaux said. Rideaux was charged in July 2021 with rape and forcible oral copulation, along with a special allegation of...

    SAN LEANDRO — A woman died and a man was hospitalized Tuesday after a collision along a roadway in the city’s light-industrial corridor, authorities said. Just after 4:10 p.m., police responded to a report of the collision on Eden Road at Doolittle Drive, San Leandro police Lt. Matthew Barajas said. When officers arrived, they found a black two-door Honda Civic that had struck a red tractor-trailer truck with a black cargo bed in the 2200 block of Eden. The Honda’s driver, an unresponsive woman, was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the Honda was taken to a hospital and was expected to survive. The tractor-trailer’s driver, who was not injured, stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators, who preliminarily found that speed was a collision factor, with the Honda seen driving southbound along Eden shortly before the collision. “We are all saddened to have learned the woman, in this case, succumbed to her injuries as we keep her and her family in our hearts,” Barajas said.
