Robert Larocca and Severo Romero Injured Elk Grove Hit-and-Run

Marcelino Castellano, 68, of Lodi, was the driver of a vehicle accompanied by Robert Larocca, 76, and Severo Ramirez, 60. As Castellano proceeded along I-5 north, his vehicle was suddenly clipped from behind by a 2001 Mercedes Benz. The contact from the Mercedes forced Castellano’s vehicle through the center divider and across southbound traffic lanes before rolling over and landing on its roof top.

The collision tragically left Castellano with fatal injuries and both Ramirez and Larocca significantly injured with broken bones.

Meanwhile, the driver of the Mercedes tailed off the road causing the vehicle to be disabled. The driver took off on foot and fled the scene. Authorities have been able to confirm that the vehicle belongs to a 24-year-old identified as Tenley Johnson.

At this time, it remains unclear if Ms. Johnson was driving the vehicle or if someone else was behind the wheel. A thorough investigation will determine who is ultimately responsible.

PEr KCRA News, Marcellino Castellano leaves hind four children, 22 grand children, and his wife Marcella.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
