Livermore Police officials confirm they have arrested a man involved in a hit-and-run collision on Jan. 6, that resulted in the serious injury of two other drivers involved. Officer Traci Rebiejo says Bert Rosenthal, 53, of San Jose was arrested by Livermore Police investigators at his home in San Jose today.

The collision occurred early in the morning on Jan. 6 in the area of State Route 84 (Vallecitos Road), just north of the main entrance to Ruby Hills. Police say a vehicle similar to a dark colored Toyota Tacoma pick-up collided with a black Honda Civic on northbound Vallecitos Road just north of Ruby Hills and the driver of the pick-up did not stop, continuing northbound on Isabel Avenue. 

Rosenthal was booked into the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin and is being held on $100,000 bail on two counts of felony hit-and-run (20001 VC).

LPD does the best that they can-the people that make the derogatory comments are usually the ones that have had bad interactions with them! 'NUFF SAID' PERIOD

Someone turning themselves in doesn't not constitute case closed. There are folks who confess to crimes they had nothing to do with, hence a followup investigation is required to ensure that the confessed suspect is in fact the one that committed the crime.

People also recant confessions rather frequently. Most police know that if all you have is a confession, absent corroborating evidence, you have a lousy case.
