Carlsbad Man Arrested In Hit-And-Run Fatality

According to this SignOnSanDiego.com article, 36 year old Joseph Ricardo Fernandez was arrested in relation to the hit-and-run death of James Steven Swarzman.

According to police, Fernandez got in touch with the Carlsbad police on Monday and said that he might have been involved in a collision. When Fernandez’s truck was examined, officers found the damage to be consistent with Swarzman’s hit-and-run.

Drinking may have been a factor.

Fernandez is currently being held in Vista on $50,000 bail, with an arraignment scheduled for Wednesday in Vista Superior Court.
