Six months jail for hit-and-run: Millbrae crash in 2012 injured two children
June 24, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

A 23-year-old woman convicted of injuring two children in a 2012 hit-and-run crash that left them lying in a Millbrae street with traumatic brain injuries was sentenced to six months in jail.

Ashika Priya Gosai, of Redwood City, was also given three years supervised probation for the Aug. 7, 2012, crash for which a jury found her guilty of two counts of felony hit-and-run causing injury.

Gosai’s defense asked to reduce the charges to misdemeanors but was denied before Judge Stephen Hall imposed sentence. Gosai must surrender to the jail on July 11 and has no credit of time against her sentence.

The youths Gosai struck, a 16-year-old girl and 11-year-old boy, ran across El Camino Real at the Hillcrest Boulevard intersection against the light and in front of her vehicle traveling north. Gosai was driving the speed limit and hit both, sending them into the air. Gosai did not slow or stop and drove away.

While a paramedic in the next car over stopped to help the children, another driver followed Gosai for a mile until she reached her cousin’s house where he confronted her. The concerned citizens left when Gosai’s family came out of the house and she drove back to the scene and told Millbrae police she panicked after hitting the children.

The girl suffered mild traumatic brain injury and the boy was in a coma for nine days and hospitalized for two weeks. They continue receiving therapy.

A jury in April deliberated less than a day before convicting Gosai.

She remains free from custody pending her surrender to jail on the condition she not drive a motor vehicle.
