Bicyclist Killed and Motorist Injured — Suspect in Custody on $350K Bail
SAN PABLO — A driver faces charges involving two separate crashes that left one man dead and another man injured. The suspect Anthony C. Greenwood, 23 of Fairfield, is being held in custody in lieu of $350,000 bond.
Both accidents occurred during the predawn hours of August 13. The first one involving a bicyclist happened on the 2400 block of Church Lane. The second collision involving another vehicle occurred on San Pablo Avenue.
Officers responded to Church Lane at 3:46 a.m., where they located the cyclist, a 57-year-old man. He was lying in the roadway suffering from severe injuries, and he was soon pronounced dead at the scene.
The vehicle that struck the cyclist fled before officers arrived. While officers were investigating, a head-on collision was reported on San Pablo Avenue, near Robert H. Miller Drive.
The victim was struck by another motorist traveling northbound in the wrong lane. Both vehicles became disabled. The victim in this second crash sustained minor injuries and was treated at a hospital.
Officers determined the wrong way driver was also responsible for the accident resulting in the death of the cyclist. Greenwood was medically examined at the scene before he was arrested and booked into the Martinez Detention Facility.
San Pablo police said in a prepared statement. “Alcohol and/or drug use has not been ruled out as contributing factors.”
Greenwood faces charges for gross vehicular manslaughter, hit-and-run causing death, and DUI alcohol/drugs resulting in death/injury.
San Pablo detectives have assumed the investigations of both accidents. Anyone with information can call the SPPD investigations unit at 510-215-3150.
