Oregon Resident Allegedly Flips Car, Killing 9-Year-Old Girl, and Flees Scene in Concord

In a tragic incident that unfolded in Concord, California, an Oregon resident, Jesus Ivan Dorantes-Guzman, is accused of flipping a Mazda, resulting in the death of a 9-year-old girl and injuries to himself and four other occupants. Authorities have revealed that after the fatal crash, Dorantes-Guzman fled the scene and remained missing for several days. However, it has come to light that the incident occurred within plain view of a nearby homeless encampment, whose residents provided consistent accounts of the events that unfolded after the accident.

The California Highway Patrol reported that the crash occurred around 5:20 a.m. on April 7, near the Interstate 680 and Highway 242 interchange. All five passengers in the vehicle, including the young victim, were injured, and tragically, Danna Hernandez Tapia, a resident of Tualatin, Oregon, lost her life. The passengers identified the driver as “Jesus Ivan,” but did not provide a last name. Some individuals present at the scene refused to disclose the identity of the driver.

Eyewitnesses from the nearby homeless encampment rushed to the crash site to offer assistance. They later recounted to the police that Dorantes-Guzman emerged from under a car, pushed one of the injured passengers aside, and fled towards Concord Avenue, while others remained at the scene. Authorities noted that Dorantes-Guzman appeared to be intoxicated and had a bloody gash on his head. However, by the time he was apprehended in Williams, a city in Colusa County, enough time had passed for any drugs or alcohol in his system to dissipate.

One of the individuals who came to aid the victims, identified as the first eyewitness at the scene, reported seeing Dorantes-Guzman urinate on the vehicle before fleeing. In his haste, Dorantes-Guzman accidentally left his cellphone behind, which proved instrumental in his identification by the police.

Dorantes-Guzman has entered a plea of not guilty and is currently held in custody on a $1 million bail. His preliminary hearing, during which a judge will review the prosecution’s evidence, is scheduled to commence on Friday.
