San Ramon police have arrested a suspect in a hit-and-run collision that killed a 72-year-old woman Sunday night, police said. Police received reports of an incident at the intersection of Bollinger Canyon Road and Canyon Lakes Drive at around 7:10 p.m. Witnesses at the scene said that a red Ford Explorer had hit the woman, a San Ramon resident, then fled, police said. According to police, San Ramon resident Justin Stubblefield was the driver of the Ford Explorer, which police tracked down shortly after the crash.
Stubblefield was arrested on suspicion of driving with a suspended license, hit-and-run resulting in death, vehicular manslaughter, and probation violation. Stubblefield also had an outstanding warrant out for his arrest on charges of burglary, police said. After receiving treatment at the scene, the victim was taken via helicopter to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek. She died there from her injuries just after 10:00 p.m., police said. The Contra Costa County coroner’s office has identified the victim but is not releasing her identity until they have notified next of kin.
