Jesus Ivan Dorantes Guzman is charged with felony hit-and-run resulting in death or serious injury and child abuse for putting a minor in a situation that caused her death, the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release Friday.

Prosecutors said the child abuse charge comes with a special allegation of great bodily injury.

Dorantes Guzman was driving a Mazda CX-9 northbound on Interstate 680 around 5:15 a.m. on April 7 when he crashed at the Highway 242 split, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Mazda overturned in a dirt area. Of the five people who were injured, three were minors. The girl who died was identified as Danna Hernandez Tapia, 9, of Tualatin, Ore.

Prosecutors said Dorantes Guzman ran from the scene and was found days later in the California city of Williams.
