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.
"Rosenthal's Toyota Tacoma has damage consistent with the collision," Rebiejo said.
According to Rebiejo, Rosenthal contacted Livermore Police after reading the article about the collision on Livermore Patch and further investigation by police led to his arrest.
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).
