Arrest in double fatal auto collision
Submitted By Fremont PD
On Friday, June 7, 2013 Fremont Police Traffic and Street Crimes Officers arrested the driver in the double fatal collision that occurred in Fremont on Paseo Padre Parkway on Tuesday afternoon. Gilbert Gil, a 34 year old Milpitas resident, was arrested in Hayward on two felony charges of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and one count of felony child endangerment. Gil was taken into custody without incident and transported by ambulance where he was booked into Santa Rita County Jail.
While this continues to be an ongoing investigation, the primary collision factor has been determined to be unsafe speed for conditions. Traffic Officers have preliminary data estimating the speed to be in the range of 65 mph. We estimate that the investigation will continue for several weeks as officers continue their analysis of collision data and await the final toxicology test results.
