On Thursday, March 17, a crash involving a stolen vehicle injured Olivia Perez and her four children in East Oakland. The incident occurred near Mills College when a suspected car thief driving a silver Toyota on 60th Avenue broadsided the silver Lexus in which Perez and her children were occupants. The suspect proceeded to flee the scene of the accident on foot, prompting police to conduct a door-to-door search of the surrounding neighborhood. Paramedics treated her at the scene and transported her children to a local hospital, explains a California personal injury attorney.
