Teen Driver May Face Vehicular Manslaughter Charges in Fatal Nuri Accident

Concord Police presented to prosecutors the investigation into the accident that claimed the lives of Hadessa, 9, and Soleiman Nuri, 41, who were riding their bicycles home on Treat Boulevard the morning of April 7.

The 17-year-old driver of the SUV that struck and killed a Concord father and his 9-year-old daughter April 7 in Concord is at the center of a case presented by police Thursday to Contra Costa County prosecutors.

Concord Police presented evidence to the District Attorney's Office as a vehicular manslaughter case after carrying out a two-month investigation into the fatal Treat Boulevard incident that claimed the lives of Hadessa, 9, and Soleiman Nuri, 41, according to Lt. Bill Roche of the Concord Police Department.

included reviewing statements of all involved parties, witnesses and emergency responder reports to more technical items such as mechanical assessments of the car, cell phone records, and standard drug and alcohol lab tests, said Concord Police Lt. Bill Roche.

All evidence will be reviewed by the District Attorney's Office, which has declined to comment while the investigation is pending. 

The Escalade flipped over a number of times, witnesses said, and damaged a building at Treat Boulevard and Oak Grove and also injured Hannah Nuri, the victims' 12-year-old daughter and sister, who survived the accident. 

Stay tuned for updates.

2 months investigation finally leads to the charge recommendation. Hopefully DA files the charges and arrest warrant quickly before the parents decide its time to "relocate".
