The po­lice yes­ter­day re­cov­ered the black lux­ury ve­hi­cle in­volved in the fa­tal hit-and-run in­ci­dent in Que­zon City last Sun­day.

The black Hum­mer ve­hi­cle is now in the cus­tody of the Que­zon City Po­lice Dis­trict's Traf­fic En­force­ment Unit (QCPDDTEU).

The ve­hi­cle’s driver, Alvin San Pablo sur­ren­dered the other day.

The deaths of Low­ell Gon­zalgo and Felix Bose barely left marks on the ve­hi­cle which was brought to the QCPD head­quar­ters in Camp Karin­gal around 10 p.m. Tues­day.

SPO4 Crisaldo Ne­menzo, DTEU in­ves­ti­ga­tor, said they traced the car in a re­mote bar­rio in Sari­aya, Que­zon.

Ne­menzo said San Pablo, af­ter the ac­ci­dent, drove the ve­hi­cle straight to Sari­aya and en­trusted it to a friend.

"Af­ter he vol­un­tar­ily ap­peared yes­ter­day (Tues­day), San Pablo told us the lo­ca­tion and our troops went there to re­trieve the car," Ne­menzo said.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tor said that San Pablo's friend, whom he did not name, was also a col­league in the net­work­ing busi­ness.

Po­lice did not find the friend at the time they were re­cov­er­ing the ve­hi­cle.

Mean­while, the po­lice have al­ready filed charges against San Pablo.

Be­sides a case of reck­less im­pru­dence re­sult­ing to mul­ti­ple homi­cide and dam­age, the po­lice also found prob­a­ble cause to sue the sus­pect for the vi­o­la­tion of the Land Trans­portaion Code when he failed to help the Gon­zalgo and Bose af­ter the ac­ci­dent, and the vi­o­la­tion of the Re­vised Pe­nal Code Ar­ti­cle 247 for aban­don­ing them.
