Hit-and-Run Crash Results In Arrest

Sponsored by:

Calaveras County, CA – A vehicle-versus-pedestrian crash in Sonora resulted in a Murphy man’s arrest.

Sonora police were recently called to the collision on North Washington Street at the Elkin Street intersection. There officers found the downed victim, but the driver, 61-year-old Ronald Bravo, took off before they arrived.

A be-on-the-lookout was issued to allied agencies, and four days later, a Calaveras County Sheriff’s Deputy spotted Bravo near the Parrotts Ferry Road Bridge. He was taken into custody for an outstanding Calaveras County information and belief warrant. Bravo was later turned over to the Sonora Police Department and booked into Tuolumne County Jail. He faces a felony hit-and-run with injury, as the victim suffered minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
