CONCORD, Calif. —The same SUV that hit and killed a father and his daughter in Concord Easter weekend had been pulled over by police in Walnut Creek a week before the fatal crash, according to the Walnut Creek police log.
Walnut Creek police recorded in their log that an officer made a traffic stop Friday, March 30, and cited a juvenile for weapons and drugs, and the plate matched that of the Escalade involved in the fatal Concord crash.
The 17-year-old driver had lost control of his SUV while he was speeding down Treat Boulevard and struck and killed a father and his daughter as they rode their bikes Saturday, April 7.
It's been more than two weeks, but Steven Pierce said he clearly remembers the night police stopped a white SUV in front of his home on Naranja Drive in Walnut Creek.
"(I) saw the police, saw a white SUV. They had a dog in the SUV sniffing around, and then the police spent quite a while going through the SUV themselves," Pierce said.
