Suspect: Crystal Diane Lia of Discovery Bay

By CHP-Contra Costa

On May 4, 2018, Contra Costa CHP began an investigation of a fatal hit and run on Hwy 4 at Bixler Road in Discovery Bay. In brief summary, the deceased was located the next day just off the roadway with no real leads that were presented early on, which compounded the tragic loss of life for the family of the deceased because we were unable to provide any clear details of what really happened at that time.

Our CHP Officers began the investigation and followed many leads, including working along side our special investigations unit, but were unfortunately unsuccessful in locating the suspect or suspect vehicle.

Then in late 2018, CHP received a tip with information regarding the investigation. This led to locating the vehicle involved, and a possible suspect as well. But many more hours of hard work were put into the case to obtain solid evidence, records, interviews, warrants, etc.

Then just last Friday, March 8, 2019, all the long hours and hard work of the investigation finally produced the fruits of the Officers labor. CHP was successful in filing a criminal complaint for Vehicular Manslaughter (DUI) and Felony Hit & Run with enhancements. The judge set bail at $300,000.

The suspect was not immediately located. But later a peaceful & successful surrender was negotiated with the suspects attorney and the suspect, Crystal Diane Lia, 36yr old from Discovery Bay, surrendered to the court Monday, March 11, 2019.

A legislator has urged Hong Kong police to investigate an alleged attack on a bus driver after viral video clips showed two mainland Chinese women physically abusing the man at a Lantau Island housing estate on Tuesday night.

The 46-year-old driver on Discovery Bay Transit Services' route DP03P was shown in a 90-second clip being screamed at by two Mandarin-speaking female passengers as he sat inside a stationary bus at the terminus at Discovery Bay North Plaza. The women repeatedly pulled at his clothes and slapped him on the head. A man tried to mediate but failed.

In another, shorter clip, the driver was seen being berated by the women outside the single-decker bus, one of them grabbing his head and pulling his hair. The other woman repeatedly pointed a finger at him and shouted at him.

One of the women then called police.

When officers arrived, one of the women was gone. The other woman and the driver both said they would not pursue the case, according to a police source.

The source said the dispute started when two mainland women and a young girl got onto the bus at the start of the route at Sunny Bay MTR station, where the driver complained they were being too slow getting on.

Both sides apparently argued during the trip.

At one point, the trio's luggage fell over when the driver hit the brake, irritating them.

The clips went viral soon after. On Thursday morning, police called at the Auberge Discovery Bay hotel, where the trio were staying. But they had checked out, the source said, adding that police were trying to find them through other channels.

Democratic Party lawmaker Roy Kwong Chun-yu said he was very concerned about the case and that he was angry about uncivilised behaviour by the passengers concerned.

He wrote to the police on Thursday to call for serious action.

'Full concentration while driving is very important for bus drivers, who are trying hard to take passengers home or to work. Passengers should not resort to violence or verbal abuse even if they are unhappy,' Kwong said, adding that society would not accept the women's disrespectful manners.

Amy Yung Wing-sheung, an Islands District Council member for Discovery Bay, said the hotel should deploy its own buses to transport its customers rather than putting a strain on the transport intended for residents of the estate.
