A pedestrian that was the victim of a hit and run near IKEA earlier this year has sadly passed from her injuries.
Michelle Farmer Eldridge, a 57 years old Piedmont resident, died from complications related to her injuries on October 31.
Eldridge was walking on the sidewalk near the Northern exit of IKEA closest to Bay Street back on January 29 when she was struck by a vehicle described as a white pickup truck.
The driver of the vehicle, later identified as 34-year-old Nathan Daniel Stenberg of San Francisco, fled on foot but was apprehended by Emeryville police a few blocks away. He was arrested and charged with felony DUI, fleeing the scene of a collision and gun possession.
Eldridge was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries “She battled a series of medical complications and is finally at peace,” according to her obituary posted on PiedmontExedra.com.
Nathan Daniel Stenberg is being held at Santa Rita Jail and is scheduled to make a court appearance on December 19. With Eldridge’s passing, his charges could be elevated to vehicular manslaughter among nine separate charges.
