A survivor of the horrendous rollover crash on Austin Road Tuesday evening, Justice Raymond Pantoja, 18, landed in the San Joaquin County Jail.

That’s because he was wanted on a $150,000 attempted murder warrant. He was charged with  four felonies and jailed without bail Tuesday night, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

Pantoja was one of the 10 occupants of a northbound SUV that rolled three times and flipped end over end in a solo crash.  It was speculated that had he been wearing his seat belt he might not have ended up in the hospital where police found him under a fictitious name.

Pantoja was recognized at county hospital by a Manteca officer when he was being treated for his crash injuries and charged with a of four felonies related to an early June drive-by shooting in Manteca.  After his release from the hospital, he was taken to the Manteca Police Department for extensive questioning.

He is charged with two counts of street terrorism, attempted willful murder, attempted premeditated murder and for being a felon in possession of a gun. His court date is set for July 8 at 1:30 p.m. in the Manteca Branch of the San Joaquin County Superior Court.
