It's been a year and a half since Oscar Chavez was killed during a hit and run incident at the intersection of Washington Blvd and Marengo Ave. I remember that October night because I live around the corner and on my way home I saw the aftermath of the collision.
21-year-old Donte Fox of Pasadena was identified as the driver of the vehicle that hit Oscar as he rode his motorcycle home. Donte abandoned the vehicle and fled the scene, but DNA evidence led the Pasadena police to Donte, who has been arrested several times.
Donte was arrested on June 21 and arraigned at the Pasadena Superior Court today. He faces level F felony murder charges among others and will be transported to the Los Angeles County Jail today to fight his case.
