CHP Arrest Jesus Ivan Dorantes, 22, for Hit-and-Run That Killed Young Girl on I-680 near Concord

Marysville, CA — According to ABC10, California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers discovered a suspect linked to a fatal hit-and-run case from Contra Costa County seeking medical attention at a Marysville hospital on Wednesday, April 12, 2024. The suspect, identified as 22-year-old Jesus Ivan Dorantes, allegedly arrived at the hospital claiming to have no memory of the events.

CHP officers in the Yuba-Sutter area encountered challenges in identifying Dorantes initially, as the name and date of birth provided did not match any records in the hospital or incarceration databases. However, their persistence led them to determine that Dorantes was a resident of another state.

Upon reaching out to law enforcement agencies in Dorantes’ home state, authorities uncovered a crucial lead: Dorantes’ license plates were linked to a recent fatal hit-and-run incident along I-680 near Concord, resulting in the tragic death of a nine-year-old girl. Taking swift action, CHP officers apprehended Dorantes on charges including manslaughter, felony hit-and-run, and child abuse.

Wrongful Death Claims

Even in cases where criminal charges are not brought to bear, families who have lost a loved one in a fatal collision may be able to file a wrongful death claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver.

The compensation provided by a wrongful death claim can relieve the financial burdens created by medical expenses, burial costs, and the loss of income to support any dependents of the deceased.

Insurance companies will work to reduce any claim they cannot deny, which is where the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can prove invaluable by negotiating on behalf of victims and their families to ensure they receive proper compensation.
