Warrant issued for fatal hit-and-run suspect

The Yolo County District Attorney’s Office has filed felony hit-and-run and other charges against a Sacramento man in connection with the July 5 death of a Woodland girl on Interstate 5.

Camron Matthew Ervin, 26, had not yet been taken into custody on the warrant as of Thursday, according to the California Highway Patrol, which conducted the investigation into the fatal accident involving 17-year-old Claudia Marie Gonzalez.

Prosecutors also allege that Ervin was driving on a suspended license at the time of the fatal collision, having been convicted of drunken driving on May 28 — just over a month before the incident on northbound I-5.

CHP officials have said Ervin was on his way to work at a Woodland warehouse on the morning of July 5 when he struck an “unknown object” near the County Road 103 overpass at about 12:30 a.m., according to Officer Bryan Konvalin.

Witnesses reported that Gonzalez had run into the traffic lanes after becoming upset during a ride home from a party in West Sacramento, prompting the driver of the car to pull over to the side of the road.

“In his statements to officers he (Ervin) said he didn’t know what he hit,” Konvalin said. Instead of stopping, however, Ervin allegedly continued driving away from the area.

Gonzalez died at the scene from her injuries.

Several days later, the CHP received an anonymous tip that led them to the discovery of a damaged brown 1998 Buick Park Avenue at Sims Metal Management, a north Sacramento auto dismantling yard. The vehicle had been scheduled for destruction before CHP investigators took possession of it, Konvalin said.

Ervin was still listed as the vehicle’s registered owner, according to the CHP.
