The BMW driver who caused last monthâ€™s fatal six-car collision in Lafayette has not been named because the case remains under investigation and officials are trying to determine if a crime occurred, police Chief Mike Hubbard says.
At a meeting on slowing traffic Wednesday, Hubbard told residents the driver is a 39-year-old man who is not a Lafayette resident. He gave no other details about the manâ€™s identity.
The driver was headed westbound on Stanley Boulevard on March 22 and collided with a Mazda at Pleasant Hill Road, causing a chain reaction involving four other cars. The Mazda driver, Dale Zenor of Walnut Creek, died.
Police are reconstructing the crash scene and it could be months before officials have â€śsolid answers,â€ť Hubbard said. No one has been arrested or charged so far.
