Visalia Elderly Maltreatment Lawyer John Rozier has the following report; On Thursday, August 14, 2014, a stolen SUV caused a multiple vehicle collision.  The car accident happened in Fresno, at about 6:55 AM.

Roberta Lynn Soto, 45 years old, was driving a stolen, red Kia Sorento north, on Fresno Street.  At the intersection of Fresno St. and Herndon Avenue, Soto ran a red light.  At the same time a silver 2008 Mazda, driven by Matthew Harkenrider, of Clovis, was westbound on Herndon Ave.

Harkenrider was killed instantly in the crash.  Six other people, including Soto, sustained moderate injuries, and were taken to Community Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Soto was arrested at the hospital and faces charges for vehicular manslaughter, and driving while under the influence.
