A 46-year-old Tracy man died from head injuries inflicted during a carjacking in Oakland on Monday, according to police.

Angel Rodriguez, who for a decade worked for a San Leandro vending machine company and lived in Tracy, was driving a company car when the suspect or suspects stole the vehicle and ran him over during their escape, Oakland police said.

Rodriguez died from blunt force trauma in a hospital that same day, according to police.

Investigators have yet to make any arrests in the case, and haven’t released details about the suspects or about the company Rodriguez worked for.

Rodriguez is survived by his 13-year-old son.

Oakland Crimestoppers is offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect or suspects involved in the carjacking. Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers at 510-777-8572 or police at 510-238-3821.

Now heres a crime you just dont see in Tracy. Its a shame that it had to happen to Mr. Rodriguez. Im sure that there is more info than what is presented in this article regarding the case progress or suspect info. Alot of evidence involved... especially when the car surfaces. These men will have there day in court.

I am shocked that people would say racist things on here. I guess I am ignorant about such things.

Tinfoil, I am sorry that you have medical issues. Some of those meds are for neurological issues as well. That would explain a lot, not that you needed to set me straight. I just wondered about some of the things you post.

My sympathy goes to Mr. Rodriguez and especially to his 13 yr old son. This poor guy, at work, just trying to make a living. Killed for no reason. I pray they arrest the animals (no matter what color they are) and keep them caged for the rest of their lives.

As for you Tinfoil...I would imagine living with kidney failure would put anyone in a foul mood. I do hope that you prove the doctors wrong and live another 15 healthy years! If my memory serves me right...95% if serial killers are white. By the way Tinfoil...I'm hispanic.

. You say strange things that make me wonder what medication you are on.

=====================

Well,lesse. I take three kinds of pills every six hours. Clonidine,enalpril and metroprolol. I'm dying of kidney failure. I have two years at best left to live. Any more questions?

I am so sorry to the young man left behind. God bless you.

Tinfoil, your comment was unnecessary. You say strange things that make me wonder what medication you are on.

Actually,I don't hear it. Born in 1946 I hang around with normal people. But there's this new generation that gets their reality far-differently than my generation got it. That's okay. What comes around goes around. Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. And so I say to the wussies out there brace yourselves for the societal future that's coming. It's going to get ugly. Only the strong will survive. I advise you buy the CD 'Till Then..The music that helped the Allies win the war'.

Your an idiot tinfoil. But i'm sure you hear that often.

I should've gone thru the police academy years ago. I would've made a primo cop. It's like I have ESP. Like in this case I know for sure the perp was'nt a white guy. It was a male,probably young and either black or Hispanic. Call me psychic.
