Galt Police Department has charged a woman in connection with a hit-and-run that left a Galt teenager hospitalized.

Local 16-year-old Angel Renteria was walking her dog on the evening of March 14 when she was struck by a vehicle on Ayers Lane. The department reported that she was found bleeding from a head wound.

In a statement on Aug. 30, the agency said that Devin Calderon, 29, of Rancho Murieta, had been arrested. It leveled multiple charges related to the hit-and-run. The department also reported that Calderon had been arrested the night of the crash for drunken driving.

While police and fire personnel were caring for Renteria after finding her, the agency said, a white Dodge Ram pickup driven by Calderon crashed into the back of a Galt police vehicle. Because an emergency vehicle was involved, California Highway Patrol investigated the crash, finding Calderon to be under the influence of alcohol; CHP arrested her at that time for driving while intoxicated.

In their investigation of the hit-and-run scene, Galt police said they found evidence “which appeared to be related to the same white Dodge Ram pickup.”

“After an extensive investigation, it was determined the Dodge Ram that collided into our patrol vehicle was the same vehicle that struck Renteria,” the Galt police statement read. “Additionally, Calderon was identified as the driver responsible for hitting Renteria and fleeing the scene.”

Galt detectives obtained a warrant for Calderon’s arrest, and she was taken into custody on Aug. 30. Calderon was charged on three counts: hit-and-run causing injury or death, driving under the influence of alcohol causing bodily injury, and driving with a blood alcohol content greater than 0.08% causing bodily injury. She was booked into Sacramento County Main Jail.

“Our hearts go out to Angel and her family as their lives were drastically changed on the evening of March 14, 2022. Angel is continuing her recovery with the support of her family by her side,” the department said in its statement.
