Oakland Radio Host Killed in Hit-and-Run

By Kelly Balamuth on April 29, 2015

Bay Area Hit and RunA long-time local radio host in the Bay Area was killed in Oakland on April 18 just after 2 a.m. in a hit-and-run. He was driving on the 5900 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and struck by a speeding Dodge Charger, causing his car to flip over, killing him at the scene.  At this time, the driver is still being sought with $10,000 in reward money being offered for information leading to the suspect’s arrest. The popular radio host leaves behind a wife and three young children.

Auto accidents make up the majority of personal injury claims in the U.S. This isn’t surprising, given that there were 5,615,000 police reported car crashes in 2012, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). As stated by the American Automobile Association, the leading causes of fatal car accidents are:

  • Inexperienced and/or elderly drivers
  • Drunk and reckless driving
  • Distracted drivers
  • Car manufacturing defects
  • Street and highway defects
  • Weather conditions
  • Driver fatigue
