Michael Cesspooch Oroville Hit-and-Run accidentBicyclist Michael Cesspooch, 53, Hit and Killed by Car in Oroville

OROVILLE (September 14, 2017) – A bicyclist was killed after an alleged hit-and-run crash on Feather River Boulevard Tuesday night, according to Chico Enterprise-Record.

Butte County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 53-year-old Michael Cesspooch, of Marysville. He died at the scene.

As per the article, police said Cesspooch was riding his bicycle south on Feather River Boulevard when he was struck by a white Ford F-150 pickup truck traveling in the same direction. The collision occurred at about 8:30 p.m.

The bike became stuck under the vehicle and was dragged a short distance before the driver pulled to the side of the road and try to allegedly hide the bicycle.

Anthony Abuanbar, 37, Arrested

A police officer saw the pickup pulled off the roadway and a man lying in the roadway on the right shoulder of Feather River. The officer attempted to stop the car, but the driver failed to yield.

The suspect, 37-year-old Anthony Abuanbar, led the police on a chase on southbound Highway 70. The high-speed pursuit ended in the area of Pacific Heights and Hilgers roads and Abuanbar was arrested.

The Oroville man is facing charges of involuntary vehicular manslaughter, driving under the influence, evading a peace officer, hit and run causing great bodily injury and hit and run causing property damage. He was booked into Butte County Jail in Oroville with bail set at $270,000.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of Mr. Michael Cesspooch during such a difficult time.


It is evident that Mr. Anthony Abuanbar will be held fully responsible for causing the incident that led to the death of Mr. Michael Cesspooch. Regardless of his reasons, leaving the area following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law, especially if the collision tragically killed another individual.

The family of Mr. Cesspooch will have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against Mr. Abuanbar who has apparently neglected the safety of others on the road. The claim will include the recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income and loss of companionship.

No amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one, however, it is important that the surviving family should be made aware of their legal rights.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

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.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
