A Contra Costa County jury today in Martinez convicted Lemuel Sirvonn Wilson Jr. (36), a DUI driver, of MURDER. He fled the scene of a fatal crash on June 30, 2017, leaving two children dead and injured two others.
The incident occurred at HWY-4 westbound at the Solano Way off-ramp by the Kinders restaurant. The front end of the Infiniti slammed into the left rear of the Durango. The collision was so severe the Durango was pushed sideways down to the edge of the on-ramp and the Infiniti was catapulted over the dividing fence and into the parking lot of Kinders where it came to rest just feet from the front door.
In the crash, a 10 year old boy and 5 year old boy from the Durango were both ejected and tragically died at the scene. The 3 month old remained in it’s car seat but sustained major injuries and was transported to Oakland Children’s Hospital. The driver, 35 year old mother, sustained major injuries and was transported to John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek.
Witnesses on scene said Wilson fled on foot across the highway and ran towards the Solano drive-in movie theater located at Arnold Industrial Place.
Wilson was found GUILTY of the following charges:
- 187 PC – Two counts of 2nd degree murder
- 23153(a)VC – One count of Felony DUI causing death or great bodily injury
- 20001(a)VC – One count of Felony hit & run causing death or great bodily injury
