Man Flown To Hospital After Reported Hit-and-Run

Officials say a man was taken to a hospital by helicopter after he was reportedly hit by a vehicle at the intersection of Holmes Street and Concannon Boulevard.

A 25-year-old man was flown to a hospital after he told officials he was hit by a vehicle while walking at the intersection of Holmes Street and Concannon Boulevard, Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department Battalion Chief Jeff Peters said.

Emergency crews were sent to the reported hit-and-run at around 10:35 a.m. Tuesday, Peters said.

However, officials said there are no witnesses to the incident.

The man complained of lower-back pain and numbness, and a helicopter was called to transport him to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley. The helicopter landed in a dirt lot on Concannon Boulevard across the Luckys Supermarket.

Eden Hospital in Castro Valley is a major trauma center facility---perhaps his injuries were serious enough to take this treatment option.

Why are you guys doubting this?? That is a bad intersection. There are speeding cars, not some just sitting there watching. Not a lot of foot traffic either. A man was hit, he didn't commit a crime. Paramedics are trained and no what a guy it by a car looks like, blood pressure, vitals and surface wounds. They don't just take you to the trauma center on your word. Not a lot of compassion here people.

I think the way the article was written opened the door for the odd reaction. Saying that the man told them he was hit by a car and that there were no witnesses gave the impression that the reporter didn't believe the story. I was happy to know that he was talking, whoever he is.

I was hit by a car in that intersection. No witnesses came forward..even though someone had called 911.

Um wow. People here are unbelievable. A man is hit and taken to a trauma center. Do you think they would have airlifted him to a trauma center because he "claimed" to be hit by a car? Obviously he had serious injuries. I was hit by a car crossing the street in that exact intersection was taken to a hospital all jacked up. and no witnesses came forward! Not one! Even though someone called 911. Seriously folks..What is the matter with all of you??
