Car accident victim critical
A Yuba City man remained in critical condition on Thursday, two days after he was run over by a vehicle.
Miguel Andrade, 35, remained hospitalized at Rideout Regional Medical Center in Marysville.
Andrade was run over around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the north parking lot of the Live Oak Apartments in Yuba City.
Yuba City police did not release any new information Thursday, including the name of the driver. The police investigation continues.
Andrade was struck by a by a gray Hyundai Sonata driven by a woman in her 20s, who police described as Andrade's girlfriend. Officers said the couple were arguing and Andrade moved out in front of the vehicle as it was moving.
He was struck by the front of the car and was trapped beneath the driver's side axle for several minutes.
It remains unclear if police believe the collision was intentional or accidental and no arrests have been made.
Shots may have been drive-by
Multiple gunshots were fired late Wednesday at a parked vehicle on Highway 99 in Live Oak in a possible drive-by shooting, the Sutter County Sheriff's Department reported.
No injuries were reported.
Deputies were called around 10:30 p.m. to the 10300 block of Highway 99.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Brenda Baker said bullets ricocheted off the parked vehicle and struck the outer wall of a nearby apartment complex. It was not clear if anybody was inside the targeted vehicle.
Witnesses told investigators a suspicious vehicle, possibly a red Nissan pickup truck, was seen driving away south on Highway 99 from Myrtle Street.
A truck matching the description was stopped a short time later, but the driver was released after a brief interview, Baker said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Department at 822-7307.
