A 52-year-old San Francisco man was arrested in Petaluma on suspicion of striking two vehicles in separate hit-and-run collisions and driving under the influence after crashing into a parked box truck, according to police.
Petaluma police said the suspect, Jacky Shiuman Chow, allegedly was involved in a hit-and-run collision with a vehicle near the intersection of Old Redwood Highway and North McDowell Boulevard around 3:45 p.m. Saturday. The victim in that collision flagged down an officer.
Moments later, police said the victim of the second collision called police to report he had been involved in a hit-and-run collision, allegedly with a vehicle that matched the description of Chow’s.
Police said Chow then drove his vehicle past the Petaluma police station, where officers spotted him and attempted to initiate a traffic stop. At that point, according to police, Chow allegedly accelerated away before a traffic stop was initiated.
According to police, Chow then crashed his car into the parked truck near the intersection of Petaluma Boulevard North and Prospect Street, and was taken into custody without incident, police said.
His blood-alcohol level was 0.16 percent, more than two times the legal limit, according to police.
