ANTIOCH — Antioch police are investigating what caused the driver of an SUV to slam into three people outside an elementary school, including a crossing guard and her 11-year-old son.
The Contra Costa Times reports (http://bit.ly/SM9u0J) that two men fled the scene of Tuesday morning's accident outside Turner Elementary School, but that one returned and identified himself to police as the driver.
Antioch police Capt. Steve McConnell says the SUV had swerved around a stopped car and hit another vehicle before the driver lost control and struck the crossing guard, her son and another woman on the sidewalk.
McConnell says the two adults were airlifted to a trauma center with severe injuries, while the less seriously injured boy was driven to a local hospital.
He says the man who identified himself as the driver appeared intoxicated.
