MARTINEZ -- A 31-year-old man was set to be arraigned Thursday on hit-and-run charges in the death of an elderly pedestrian fatally struck in a San Ramon crosswalk on Sunday.
San Ramon resident Justin Stubblefield was charged Wednesday with felony hit-and-run resulting in death and one misdemeanor count each of vehicular manslaughter and driving with a suspended license, Contra Costa deputy District Attorney Brian Baker said. The felony charge carries a penalty of up to four years in state prison.
San Ramon resident Miu Lee, 72, was walking in a crosswalk on Bollinger Canyon Road at about 7 p.m. Sunday, when Stubblefield -- making a left turn from Canyon Lakes Drive -- allegedly hit her with his red Ford Explorer. Both Stubblefield and Lee had a green light, Baker said. Alcohol and drugs have been ruled out as a contributing factor.
Stubblefield kept driving after the collision and was arrested by San Ramon police about a half-hour later, Baker said. He was wanted on an arrest warrant for violating his probation following a burglary conviction, Baker said.
Lee was taken by helicopter to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where she died about three hours later, police said.
Investigators ask anyone with information about the collision to call the San Ramon Police Department at 925-973-2700.
