On December 26, 2011 at 7:42 p.m., two officers with the Fremont Police Department found a male down in the southbound lane of Ardenwood Boulevard, just south of Hwy 84; passer-bys administered CPR.
Preliminary investigation revealed the 56 year-old transient male was crossing southbound Ardenwood Boulevard in an easterly direction outside of a crosswalk. A light colored midsize sport utility vehicle was traveling southbound Ardenwood Boulevard in the #1 lane. The SUV struck the male, knocking him to the ground, and continued traveling southbound Ardenwood Boulevard. A second vehicle, behind the SUV, also ran over the male while he was on the ground. Both vehicles fled the scene.
The male was transported by Paramedics Plus to Eden Hospital in Castro Valley where he was pronounced deceased.
Both vehicles and drivers are still outstanding at this time. Anyone with information regarding this accident is asked to contact Officer Peters #2274 with the Fremont Police Department traffic unit (510) 790-6800 (6760) or Press Information Officer, Detective Bill Veteran at (510) 790-6972.
