Dennis Nix, 60, was killed last November 22 when a car collided with his scooter in the city’s Ingleside district.

Brendan Wallace, 32, of Broadmoor, California, and Heinz Raino Cortado, 34, also of Broadmoor, were arrested in connection with the case.

Wallace was taken into custody at his place of employment in Mountain View. He was identified by police as the driver of a silver-colored Mercedes used in the collision. Cortado surrendered to SFPD officers at the Broadmoor Police Station in San Mateo County April 8. He was identified by police as the getaway driver of a second car that picked up Wallace after the accident.

Wallace was booked on vehicular manslaughter, felony hit and run, and providing false information to peace officers. Cortado was booked on felony accessory to the hit and run and providing false information to peace officers.

The Bay Area Reporter will have more in Thursday’s paper.
