Arrest warrant served in golf cart fatality

A Dorrington man accused of fleeing the scene of a fatal accident involving a golf cart in September was arrested Thursday, according to the California Highway Patrol office.

Darrell Antony Hale, 29, of Dorrington is believed to be the driver of the vehicle that was towing 28-year-old Cody Agasi-Horn of Angels Camp on a golf cart, at the time of his death. Hale was served an arrest warrant on Thursday.

On Sept. 5, CHP San Andreas responded to a fatal collision on Highway 4, west of Redhill Road. According to CHP the towing vehicle allowed the golf cart to travel across the double yellow traffic lines and toward oncoming traffic. The golf cart hit a 2000 Ford F-550 truck, driven by a Murphys man at approximately 4:55 a.m.

During the collision investigation, officers determined the golf cart was recently stolen from a private property and being towed behind an unknown vehicle at the time of the collision. The driver of the towing vehicle fled the scene of the collision and did not contact law enforcement or emergency medical services as required by law.

Hale was arrested and booked into the Calaveras County Jail for a hit and run resulting in injury or death. The vehicle that Hale was allegedly driving at the time of the collision was recovered at a residence in Vallecito.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information may contact the CHP San Andreas area office at 754-3541.
