TRUCKEE, CA, (April 21, 2021) – Justin “Shuba” Ardagh died in a DUI hit-and-run crash Wednesday last week in downtown Truckee.
The crash happened around 10:30 p.m. on April 14, in the area of Jibboom Street and Bridge Street. According to Truckee police, a red Subaru struck the 25-year-old Truckee resident near the intersection.
The driver of the Subaru, 32-year-old Stephen Andrew Lally, fled the scene without rendering aid.
Responding paramedics found Ardagh lying unconscious on the street. They rushed him to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, Nevada with severe head injuries.
