Fremont/Newark News of the Day

UPDATE:  I talked to the mother of one of the boys injured on Scott Creek Road.  A few new details

1) There were five boys walking home from school about 3:10 p.m.
2) One boy suffered a broken skull.
3) Another boy suffered a broken skull, broken nose and broken arm
4) A third boy needed 40 stitches to close a major cut on his forehead.

They were walking up Scott Creek Road near Riesling, when they saw the vehicle flipping over down the road heading toward them. They ran into the bushes to try to avoid the van.

Four Horner Middle School students sustained non life-threatening injuries when a motorist lost control of his/her SUV on Scott Creek Road. The vehicle rolled onto the sidewalk striking a light pole, trees and the four students, none of whom were in school today. The students were taken to area hospitals, as was at least one passenger in the car.  Authorities said the driver was speeding, but that alcohol didn’t appear to be a factor in the crash.

Newark police were called to the area of Lafayette and Ruschin where car was parked in the middle of the road without a right front tire. Officers contacted the owner, who didn’t know how or where she lost the tire. But gouge marks in the road appeared to show that she had driven without the tire at least from I-880. Officers arrested her for DUI.

  1. Just wondering why it took days for this to be reported. Alot has been going on in Warm Springs lately and this area needs more Police presence and information of current events. There have been 15-20 residential break in’s in just the last 6 weeks.

  2. I agree with Martin what is going on here?


    “install a traffic signal on Scott Creek Road between Warm Springs Boulevard and Interstate 680. Previous attempts to install a signal were unsuccessful, she said.”
    I guess we have to wait for someone to die? The kids got off the AC tranit bus and this is what they got. I know all of these kids as well and wish them a speedy recovery and prayers to the family as well
    I would say that is is news worthy eh? What are we waiting for folks?!

  3. Excuse me?! you are talking about break ins when this report is about a car crash. are you f***ing stupid or what. Learn to read moron!
