PLEASANTON, CA (August 16, 2021) — Joseph Lax of Pleasanton was struck by a hit-and-run driver in the Montclair neighborhood of Oakland Hills last Sunday night.

Subsequently, the driver of the Chevy, Lax and Lax’s occupants became involved in an altercation. However, the incident escalated when the driver of the Chevy left the area, yet only to return in an attempt to hit the others, who were outside of their vehicle at the time.
