The city of Concord is grieving following a tragic accident that occurred on April 7, 2012. A father and his two young daughters were riding their bicycles along Treat Boulevard when they were struck by an SUV. According to published reports, the driver of the SUV was speeding when he lost control of the vehicle and struck the family.
After the accident, the father and his 9-year-old daughter were pronounced dead at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek.
