Collision victim treated and released

by Gregory Crofton, Tribune staff writer

Warren Steinhauser, the 76-year-old from Beverly Hills, Calif., who had to be cut out of his Ford Explorer Monday afternoon after it rolled three times on U.S. Highway 50 at Lodi Avenue, was treated and released from Barton Memorial Hospital Monday night.

Witnesses told police that Steinhauser was driving eastbound on Highway 50 when a car going north on Lodi Avenue ran a stop sign and collided with the right rear side of Steinhauser’s vehicle.

Citizens followed the car to the parking lot of Carrows’ Restaurant where the driver, John Carl Fogo, a 41-year-old resident of South Lake Tahoe, left his car and ran for the woods.

Three people caught Fogo and held him until police arrived.

Police arrested Fogo for felony driving under the influence, hit-and-run causing injury, driving with a suspended license and non-issue registration. His bail was set at $37,000.
