Video: Man arrested for crashing into two boys in Castro Valley hit-and-run appears in court


CASTRO VALLEY (KRON) — The man arrested for crashing into two young boys in Castro Valley just made his first appearance in court Friday.

Twenty-nine-year-old Daniel Morris is accused of hitting two brothers while they were walking to school with their grandmother last Monday.

KRON’s Dan Kerman was in court as Morris faced a judge. Morris did not enter a plea in court Friday afternoon and will be back on Tuesday to face charges.

Morris’ bail is set at $465,000.

Morris was arrested early Wednesday morning at a hotel in Hayward only a few miles from the crash scene, an Alameda County sheriff’s sergeant said.

A joint law enforcement effort including the sheriff’s office, the California Highway Patrol, and the U.S. Marshals Service, tracked 29-year-old Daniel Morris, identified as a suspect in the March 7 crash, to a hotel in the 21800 block of Foothill Boulevard near the Hayward-Castro Valley border, sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Kelly said.

Morris was taken into custody without incident at 1:15 a.m. Wednesday, Kelly said.
