PLEASANTON -- A San Ramon man accused in a fatal hit-and-run accident had his court appearance delayed Tuesday because the Alameda County district attorney's office is awaiting accident reports.
Spencer Freeman Smith, 32, a lawyer with a San Francisco firm, will return to Alameda County Superior Court at 9 a.m. June 27.
Smith is accused of killing Bo Hu, 57, of China on May 15 in a hit-and-run accident on Dougherty Road near Fall Creek Road in Dublin, according to police.
An Alameda County district attorney spokeswoman said that the case is still being investigated and as of Tuesday morning had not yet been submitted to the district attorney's office for review.
According to police, Hu was either riding or walking his bike at 11:30 p.m. when he was struck by a car that did not stop. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Car parts from the crash were left at the scene and police later learned that Smith had recently purchased a car that matched the one involved in the accident. When police searched his home garage, they discovered a black Mercedes-Benz that had major damage to its windshield and front end. It was also missing the same parts that had been discovered at the accident scene.
Smith isn't in jail, he was released on $60,000 bail.
