On 12/12/21, at approximately 0138 hours, SRPD officers responded to the area of 3700 Old Redwood Highway on a report of a hit and run. Once on scene, officers learned a male, who was riding a horse, was struck by a vehicle and the vehicle fled the scene. The male victim sustained significant injuries and is in critical condition at a local hospital. The horse was transported away from the scene by the victim’s associates.
The victim was associated with a group of other horseback riders and persons walking who were taking part in a march for the Virgin of Guadalupe. The total number of people involved was in excess of 100. The march started in west Santa Rosa and continued toward Windsor.
SRPD officers located the suspect’s vehicle parked at an address in north Santa Rosa. Officers then contacted the suspect at the residence. The suspect is identified as 20-year-old Troy Hale of Santa Rosa.
A search warrant was authored for Hale’s vehicles and residence. Officers executed the service of the search warrant and located suspected fentanyl pills and suspected cocaine, which appeared to be possessed for the purpose of sale. Ammunition was also located.
