A 4-year-old girl was killed and at least three others were hospitalized Wednesday after a stolen truck ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle in Antioch, police said.
The suspect, identified as 23-year-old Noe Saucedo of Pittsburg, was arrested and booked on one count of murder and two counts of felony evading, police said. He is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
The collision was reported shortly after 12:47 p.m. Wednesday when the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office received information of a stolen vehicle in Pittsburg. A deputy spotted the vehicle and followed as it headed eastbound on Highway 4.
Authorities said the deputy at the time did not activate his vehicle's emergency lights.
