Hit & Run and Consequences

It was a dark, busy intersection, and a woman was not using a crosswalk. The woman was killed near the intersection of Beach Boulevard and La Palma Avenue in Buena Park, CA. The man who turned himself in is Salvador Sanchez Perez, Sr., 46, of Stanton. Buena Park police Sgt., Bill Kohanek said that Perez came to the station at 9p.m., Thursday night and turned himself in, accompanied by about eight members of his family. Perez posted $50,000 bail after he was arrested at the station on suspicion of a felony hit-and-run., he told police he panicked after the accident, which is why he left the scene. Perez faces a fine from $1,000 to $10,000, two to four years in state prison or 90 days in county jail.

This man can also be charged with vehicular manslaughter, which can carry a sentence of two to ten years in state prison or one year in county jail depending on the circumstances of the case and if there is evidence of negligence on the drivers part involved. If convicted of either of these charges he could lose his driving privileges with the Department of Motor Vehicles as well.
