A Santa Rosa man suspected of deserting two injured passengers after crashing his pickup has turned himself in one week after the Highway 101 collision, CHP officials said.
Corey Jorden Ferrere, 29, met investigators at the CHP’s Rohnert Park headquarters on Monday, Officer Juan Leon said. Ferrere was booked into the Sonoma County Jail on suspicion of felony hit-and-run and drunken driving causing injuries.
CHP officials said Ferrere was speeding when he lost control of the pickup and crashed at about 2:10 a.m. June 6 just on southbound Highway 101 north of Todd Road. The 2005 Dodge Ram flipped, and seriously injured two passengers who were trapped inside, officials said.
Witnesses told officers that the driver ran from the crash and jumped a fence.
Officers knew Ferrere was the driver, but couldn’t find him until he called the CHP and agreed to turn himself in, Leon said.
Ferrere is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon, according to jail records. He’s being held on $100,000 bail.
