On July 16, 2012, at approximately 10:00 p.m., Harison Long-Randall, a 21 year old from Grass Valley, and Gemily West, a 23 year old from Carmichael, were walking their four dogs on eastbound Engle Road at Garfield Avenue.
An unknown driver, driving a metallic light brown 1986 or 1987 Nissan Maxima, was traveling southbound on Garfield Avenue just north of Engle Road. As Randall, West, and the four dogs were crossing Garfield in the crosswalk, the suspect vehicle struck a stop sign pole on the northwest corner of the intersection. The suspect vehicle continued in a southerly direction striking Mr. Randall, Ms. West and the four dogs within the crosswalk.
Based on the physical evidence collected at the scene, the suspect vehicle will have sustained moderate left front end damage consisting of a missing driver’s side mirror and damaged left side running lights and turn signal lens. The driver fled the scene of the collision in the suspect vehicle. Randall and West were transported to Mercy San Juan Hospital with major injuries. All four dogs were killed as a result of this collision.
Harison Long-Randall died on July 29, 2012 at 0302 hours at Mercy San Juan Medical Center due to complications resulting from injuries he sustained in this traffic collision. Additional charges are being considered by the Sacramento District Attorneys office.
