Hit And Run Accident Leads To Arrest

Sonora, Ca — Gilbert Aguiar of Sonora was driving through the intersection of Stewart St. and Jackson St. Monday night, and was broadsided by a Mitsubishi Eclipse that failed to stop at the stop sign.

The driver of the Mitsubishi proceeded to drive away from the scene of the accident. Aguiar was not injured, so he followed the vehicle to Summit Ave. Aguiar then spoke to the driver and detained him until officers arrived.

The suspect was identified as 24 year old Rafael Luquin of Sonora. Luquin admitted to officers that he left the scene because he did not have a valid license or insurance. Luquin was placed under arrest and booked at Tuolumne County Jail.
