Mathew Eck Santa Rosa Fatal Hit-and-Run at Stony Point and Occidental Roads

LOCATION: Santa Rosa

DATE OF COLLISION: Saturday, September 15th

September 17, 2018 – A 37-year-old Santa Rosa man was killed in an alleged hit-and-run collision at the intersection of Stony Point and Occidental roads, according to the Press Democrat.

The fatality was identified as Mathew Thomas Eck.

Officials believed Eck was homeless. It was not immediately clear what the man was doing at the location, but he was reportedly struck by a white compact sedan. The driver of that sedan apparently did not stop following the collision.

Deadly Hit-and-Run Accident Saturday in Santa Rosa

A passing driver, who came upon the body of the victim, called 911 shortly before 9:20 p.m. on Saturday. Responding emergency teams sadly pronounced Eck deceased at the scene.

The suspect car was reportedly last seen heading west on Occidental Road and is thought to have major front-end damage.

Anyone with information related to the deadly incident is requested to call the authorities at 707-543-3636.

Further investigation on the case is ongoing.

Motorists are obliged to remain at the scene after being involved in a collision. A driver who flees the area without rendering assistance or leaving a contact information can be subjected to felony hit-and-run charges. Based on this news report, it is apparent that the motorist involved who continued driving after hitting Mr. Mathew Eck will be held responsible for the tragic incident.

In this specific case, the family members of Mr. Mathew Eck have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault person.
