Man suspected in fatal Colma hit-and-run turns himself in

The man Colma police suspect of being the driver in a deadly hit-and-run has surrendered to authorities.

Police were on the hunt for the Daly City man after he reportedly limped away from the crash site early Monday morning.

Paul Diaz, 25, of Daly City is suspected of being the driver in the horrific crash — which split a green Ford Mustang in half. The accident occurred about 7:40 a.m. on Hillside Boulevard not far from the Lucky Chances casino.

A witness told KTVU that there were four people in the Mustang, all of whom were ejected from the vehicle. One of the four limped away, while the other three — two men and a woman — were pronounced dead at the scene.

The San Mateo County Coroner’s Office identified the victims as Ruvin Abel Vazquez, Jonathan Jade Mouton and Rosa Maria Falla, all Daly City residents who were reportedly in their 20s.

Traffic was disrupted on Hillsdale Boulevard in both directions during the course of the investigation.
