Update to Fatal Collision

On April 17th, 2018 at approximately 5:10 am, our officers responded to a major injury collision at the intersection of Laurel Rd and O’Hara Ave. Upon arrival, our staff discovered two vehicles with major damage, a Honda Civic and a Chevy SUV. The adult male driver of the Honda Civic and his adult female passenger sustained major injuries. The driver of the SUV was injured as well, but to a lesser extent.

The driver of the SUV was transported to Kaiser in Antioch where he was treated and released. The occupants of the Honda were ultimately transported to John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek. The adult female died as a result of her injuries. The male subject is still in critical condition. Both subjects are from out of state.

The preliminary investigation has determined the Honda was traveling north on O’Hara Ave. As the vehicle approached the intersection of Laurel Rd, it moved into the southbound traffic lanes of O’Hara Ave, passing stopped traffic. The Honda entered the intersection against the red light traveling north in the southbound lanes of O’Hara Ave and it collided with the SUV in the intersection. The SUV was traveling east on Laurel Rd.

The driver of the Honda has been identified as Jerome Dunks a 37 year-old male. His last known address was in Casper, Wyoming at a minimum security detention facility. At the time of the collision, Mr. Dunks had a warrant for his arrest for leaving the facility in Wyoming. The Honda was reported as stolen out of Wyoming.

The female passenger has been identified as Erica Pearce a 34 year-old female from Montana. Ms. Pearce’s last known address was a minimum security detention facility in Missoula, Montana. At the time of her death, Ms. Pearce had a warrant for her arrest for leaving the detention facility.

It is unclear what the relationship between Mr. Dunks and Ms. Pearce was or how they met. Both subjects walked away from their respective detention facilities approximately 10 days ago.

We have waited to present all of this information until next-of-kin of the deceased could be notified.
