Fontana Woman Arrested for Hit-and-Run Collision that Left Fontana Teen Dead

FONTANA – Three suspects fled from two Friday night traffic collisions, one non-injury and the second that ultimately killed a teen authorities said.

At around 8:44 p.m. authorities were called to the area of Juniper and Randall Avenues for the report of a hit and run traffic collision. There were no injuries as a result of the collision that reportedly involved a Maroon 2014 Chrysler 300.

Moments later, while officers were on their way to the first collision, a second occurred at Randall and Citrus Avenue. This collision also involved a Maroon Chrysler 300 and 2001 blue Toyota Corolla. A badly injured 18-year-old front passenger was reportedly inside the Toyota. When emergency medical personnel arrived, the young woman, later identified as Brenda Amador of Fontana was rushed to Kaiser Hospital with head trauma. Amador was pronounced dead in the emergency room at 9:18 p.m.

“Witnesses on scene told Officers a White female adult, and two White male adults were seen running from the Maroon Chrysler prior to officer’s arrival,” Fontana Police official said in the news release. “Fontana Police Major Accident Investigation Team and San Bernardino County Crime Scene Investigators responded to conduct their investigation.”

Through investigation, it was learned that the Toyota was driving southbound on Citrus Avenue at the Randall Avenue intersection. The driver of the Chrysler was driving westbound on Randall Avenue,  ran the red light at Citrus Avenue, and struck the driver’s side of the Toyota. Further investigation led to two males and one female.

The following day, on Saturday, July 22, 2017, a search warrant was served on the 14900 block of San Bernardino Avenue in the City of Fontana. Two men and a woman were detained for questioning. One male was interviewed and released. A second male was booked into the West Valley Detention center for an unrelated warrant. The woman, Michelle Dobbs, 39, of Fontana told authorities she was driving at the time of the collision and was booked into the West Valley Detention Center for Vehicular Manslaughter.

Authorities said it is unknown if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the collision.  Anyone with information related to the crash is requested to contact the Fontana Police Department at (909) 350-7700.


A Go Fund Me account has been set up to assist Amador’s Family with any costs that arise as a result of her untimely death.
