PHOTOS: Double Fatal Collision Suspect Calls Himself “Race Fox” on Social Media

April 8, 2012 14:03 pm · 259 comments

The suspect police say was involved in Saturday’s double fatal collision in which a father & daughter were killed while riding their bikes on Treat Boulevard in Concord, calls himself “Race Fox” on social media.

The suspect, who his friends have identified as 17-year-old Concord resident & Olympic High School student David Rosen, has been arrested for Vehicular Manslaughter, and is currently in juvenile hall, according to police.

Witnesses tell that Rosen was speeding before the collision, which ended with the suspect crashing his white Cadillac Escalade into a building after he hit and killed the victims on Treat Boulevard near Oak Grove Road.

41-year-old Soliman Nuri died at the scene, and his daughter, 9-year-old Hadessa Nuri, died in the trauma center at John Muir in Walnut Creek. Nuri’s other daughter was injured, but she’s expected to survive.

On his Facebook account, Rosen made a chilling post on March 22, 2012 about a near fatal motorcycle collision that occurred in almost the same exact spot as the collision he allegedly caused on Saturday.

Also on his Facebook account, he talks about his newly purchased Cadillac Escalade and his mom getting struck by a drunk driver.

“Shut up about this, people die in car accidents oh well. Stop judging this guy and the school he went to. You are all pathetic by turning this into such a big deal.”

Yes, people do die in car accidents everyday. Unfortunately many people knew the father and the daughter and this happened in OUR community. Whether we knew them or not doesn’t matter because this has touched all of our lives in some way. Not only because it is so tragic but also it seems the driver seemed so reckless and irresponsible in his behavior. This could have been any one of us…… If you don’t have the sensitivity or the capacity to understand this, then I feel sorry for you. Society has become so callous and cutthroat, it’s chilling.

WOW….LMAO AT THE TRUTH of your post

205 K9 Owner April 8, 2012 at 10:41 PM

@ a collection of responses

thanks for some clearly written material that makes sense. these comments are making me dizzy….

206 @ Amanda April 8, 2012 at 10:52 PM

People can be harsh. We forget how difficult it can be to grow up. We’ve been there. Insecurities come to mind when some girls hang with certain boys. You want to be in the “cool” crowd and sadly some of these boys are deemed cool today. Tomorrow you will look back and ask yourself, “what was I thinking?” It takes a strong individual to break away from bad influences. Influences that are immature and lack any decency. Having a spine means rejecting the bad boy image. Usually these bad boys amount to nothing later in life. Some are still trying to make it. I know, I’ve been to many high school reunions. Most of the cool, bad ass guys are either dead, in or our of jail, alcoholics or drug addicts or losers. If you are as smart as you say you are, find friends that have ambition and real goals in life……

207 why? April 8, 2012 at 10:52 PM

This is a time for all of us to reflect. I urge the young people to reflect on their life and the path they have chosen. Please stop acting like thugs and crooks. Educated and enlighten yourselves. That is the most important thing you can do at this young age. And do not defend a criminal or criminal acts, even if it involves your friends. Learn from this tragedy, improve yourselves. STOP TEXTING AND BEING DISTRACTED WHILE DRIVING!!!

208 why? April 8, 2012 at 10:54 PM

@ 108

“Shut up about this, people die in car accidents oh well. Stop judging this guy and the school he went to. You are all pathetic by turning this into such a big deal.”

We all saw your picture, we all know your a fat ugly turd from your facebook picture now tell Demitri there a lot of people looking for him. I would tell him to stay hiding because it not safe on these streets anymore.

211 TG from Clayton April 8, 2012 at 11:11 PM

All these are facts – ethical or not. This is something you will not see on “the news” which is why I like Claycord. Thank you for having the balls to tell it exactly how it is.

212 WTF April 8, 2012 at 11:12 PM

You didn’t coin WTF, you don’t own it, get a life.

213 NeedsHelp April 8, 2012 at 11:13 PM

I hope that this young man can get some serious help while he is incarcerated or on probation or whatever. What a horrible thing he has done. May all who are suffering heal some day and find light in their lives.

214 anonamel April 8, 2012 at 11:14 PM

you are mistaken if you think he “has a life”, his future as we know it is over. He will never be able to go anywhere in his life where this will not haunt him. He likely will become another statistic, and live his life in an out of the prison system. Unable to complete an education, or land a decent job. He may have survived the crash, but there is a difference between being able to live your life and just “being alive”.

This could have happened to any single one of us, it could have been the soccer mom in the suburban who decided to brake hard to avoid hitting a squirrel. The devoted dad on his way to work that spilled coffee in his lap. The young son/daughter who thought that, I’ve sped down this road countless times, this time will be no different. The brother or sister that decided just this one time it would be ok to drink and drive.

How are we honoring the victims by crucifying this young man? Will it bring them back? He’s just as much a member of this community as the Nuri family, and if they can find compassion for him in their hearts… why can’t all of you armchair quarterbacks who have lost NOTHING this past weekend aside from the countless hours you’ve spent spreading half truths with your seething commentary. He will be punished in far more ways than one, the excessive hatred really isn’t necessary.

215 Sonnage April 8, 2012 at 11:14 PM

Throw this wigga in jail and lock him up for good. Make an example out of him so his other dumb friends can hopefully learn that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. Sad about the victims and victims family.

216 REAL TRUTH April 8, 2012 at 11:17 PM

To all the other young adults and teens out there that think you are looking soooo cool, driving to fast and cutting people off, bass thumpin, Coffey can exhaust pipe, hoody up. Everybody hates you!!! even your idiot counterparts. We ALL say LOOK AT THAT IDIOT (as you go by), there going to kill someone. SO PULL YOUR PANTS UP, TURN YOUR HAT AROUND, AND SLOW THE F**K DOWN BEFORE YOU DO!!!!!!!!!

217 SoHo April 8, 2012 at 11:24 PM

Prayers go out to the Nuri family and friends. I was at the sence 1 hr after and was shooken up for about 2 hrs. Maybe someone should contact the IRS for an audit on David Rosen/ family to see how he paid for his SUV. And why was he a regular at the liquor store every day after school, across the street from where the sence took place. I’m so sure he was buying candy…
I just hope that justice is served!

218 J. Lilly April 8, 2012 at 11:25 PM

Is this what it’s like in Concord these days? Damn.

219 TG from Clayton April 8, 2012 at 11:28 PM

…oh yeah – and posting someone’s public Facebook profile is way worse than killing (2) people and injuring (1).

Really? Think people.

Drove by the momorial tonight after having Easter dinner with “all” my family. Very sad.

220 SoHo April 8, 2012 at 11:33 PM

Keep up the good work Mayor. I think it is important to see the true character that David Rosen really is. That is why there are “Character witnesses” in court. Also don’t forget “Judgement Day”.

221 UNIDENTIFIED April 8, 2012 at 11:34 PM


I’m offended by some of these posts because you say it’s because the school, parents, and his financial situation !?!?! I’m 20yrs old and I graduated from a dump school because I worked my whole highschool til now cuz my family struggled & my parents are recovering addicts also not being the best respondsible role models in my life and I have nice things because I wooed for it but that doesn’t make me immature or irresponsible. I’m not here to say how stupid he is because you all have clarified that & I’m sure he’ll be suffering knowing he took 2 people’s lives. My heart and prayers are for the families. I do think they shouldn’t go easy on him but I would not take his life for 2 lives cuz if this world went by and eye for an eye we would all be blind.

222 SoHo April 8, 2012 at 11:41 PM

@ Lil Chris, that sounds like a threat?… And what does this have to do with this blog? Someone needs to get ur IP address.

223 SoHo April 8, 2012 at 11:46 PM

@ unidentified, check out the crime rate in Sadi Arabia… They do the eye for an eye, and seems pretty successful. You steal, the cut off your hand. Google what they do for rape.

224 No sir.. April 8, 2012 at 11:50 PM

I bet he does not use the n word one time in jail on the max offender unit.

225 Lil Chris April 9, 2012 at 12:01 AM

@ SoHo

How is that a threat? It the word on the streets and all I said was there are people looking for him and he should hide. Actually im warning him. Idiot.

226 TG from Clayton April 9, 2012 at 12:01 AM


Couldn’t have said it better myself !!!

227 sweetpealover April 9, 2012 at 12:03 AM

People are judged by their actions. Therefore if someone acts recklessly and carelessly they should be treated and punished to the fullest extent of the law (more for this jerk). And everyone should know that anything we put on the internet or fb is free game for everyone. If you act like an idiot you will be treated the same. Simple as that. Get used to it.

228 UNIDENTIFIED April 9, 2012 at 12:09 AM

Why do Some of these kids on here think making threats and taking someone elses life will bring back the two people that was taken but it wont it just makes matters worse im sure that the father that passed away and his wife wouldn’t wanna take someone’s life away and suffer as they did so think before you talk. Someone should be watching some of these people throwing out threats

229 Illiter8 April 9, 2012 at 12:25 AM

232 Dennis April 9, 2012 at 12:45 AM

“Let him who is without sin cast the first stone”

really? So those who commit a minor sin are not allowed to recognise and react to those committing large sins? That’s certainly not the intent of the saying.

After Columbine, there were those who wanted to plant memorial trees for the shooters amongst the trees for their victims, and bury the shooters alongside their victims, because the shooters also lost their lives, and thus were victims as well. (WRONG).

Why should we teach our children right from wrong, and then tell them to ignore those teachings, and accept those abberrants into their social group (ie. friends)?

Teens need to understand that they will be held accountable for the consequences of their actions (including being shunned by society).

They also need to understand that uniforms exist for a reason: instant recognition of status, whether military, police, even Emo, Goth, Gangsta.

If they insist on broadcasting an identity, they need to understand they will be judged by society according to the ‘identity’ of the uniform they choose to adopt.

Perhaps you should check out demitris comment who claims to be this punk Davids brother. He went on to threaten someone on fb by saying “your going to end up like those 2 people” and “f**k those people”. This coward and internet thug should be arrested immediately and im going to make sure cpd know about the threats this punk made. It just goes to show how much of a low life his whole family is.

238 Interesting Fact about David April 9, 2012 at 6:13 AM

I googled his school and the program, David was Student of the Week in March.

239 lexicon6 April 9, 2012 at 7:21 AM

TRUE: When I first heard about this, I thought it was a rich kid whose parents bought him an Escalade, or he had the family wheels. I had never even heard of Olympic High. But further info clarifies things a bit. $14K IS a lot of money for a 17yr old without a job. Must be some big Christmas gifts.

I love how being a REPUBLICAN is a huge insult for you. You live in such a small world. Do you know that millions of people in the country are Republicans?

Another poster is right: These kids are trying to live a music video.

And I never lumped all teens in one category, but you seem willing to lump all adults in on category.

A kid that struck out twice in two at-bats and never made a play in the field got Player of the Game in my kid’s baseball game this week. And?

243 anon April 9, 2012 at 7:43 AM

For anyone that doesn’t have facebook and missed some moments that should also be preserved, the site facepunch has a 7 page thread about this (as others have mentioned) which includes some very disgusting facebook screenshots. Some have been shown here but there is another one that deserves attention. It has been deleted but at this link the second post down is the one in question.

The brother openly mocks killing the girl in the pic by saying, “no she was riding a bike and i hit her with my car it was a cadillac to be exact you mad bro”. Some concerned defense lawyer in training (seriously, he admits it on page 7) has been contacting the brother who writes this garbage and getting facts wrong by insinuating that the Rosen’s are poor people and thus those outraged by his behavior are wrong and by incorrectly stating that the posts were made an hour after the collision and in a very small time frame. He convinced him to delete the posts which he did, after a while. The emails to the brother are posted (all?) and the whole exchange is a very interesting peek into the mind of a defense lawyer in training. The future lawyer and new friend of Rosen’s brother is “FreakyMe” in the forum.

244 PACO TACO April 9, 2012 at 7:54 AM

To be fair, David Rosen is actually a good dude.. I know this was a huge mistake but and he f-ed up, but lets have the lynch mob stand down, he will be punished for what he did which will never be equal to taking lives but lets remember he didnt do it on purpose, just a young cat in a fast SUV.. I dont really like how Claycord went all “Perez Hilton” and ufairly posting his facebook updates, yea him and his friends would talk crap and bragg about speeding but he never said he was out to kill people.. Just like the victims family he will live with this day for the rest of his life,

245 Judge Roy Bean April 9, 2012 at 8:25 AM

Student of the week don’t mean squat at Olympic…Its handed out like candy.
You all can guess how he was making his money? and gassing up the beast.

246 @paco taco April 9, 2012 at 8:43 AM

Just like the victims family??? He didn’t kill two of his own family members.

247 the_dude April 9, 2012 at 9:08 AM

Olympic High school = loser. So how does a loser kid going afford a cadillac escalade?

248 anono April 9, 2012 at 9:09 AM

They Mayor couldn’t have gotten screenshots from Rosen’s FB if it was private, unless he had Rosen’s password. Many of the kids on FB are stupid and don’t mark their FB posts ‘Friends’ only.

Get over the language that Rosen and his friends use. It’s just language that many kids use today — even good ones.

What is relevant is what Rosen was doing at the time of the accident. If he was going fast enough, he should be charged appropriately with a felony. I don’t think kids should be charged as adults. If they’re not old enough to enter into a legal contract, drink, etc., they should be treated as minors in everything. Rosen could easily be sentenced for several years if it’s proven that he was driving recklessly. In addition, I think a tremendous amount of community service should be assessed. Maybe the family could select the type of community service Rosen should perform. He should have to pay a large amount of restitution to the family.

Amanda — grow up. This isn’t really about your friend. This is about David running his car over two people and taking their lives. He’s responsible for their deaths. He can never undo this. He can never fix the Nuri family. If someone was speeding (and may have been doing something else that’s illegal while driving) and killed your parents, would you be saying the same thing? David has to be held accountable, and a few weeks in juvenile detention isn’t adequate. David should be subject to the loss of his freedom in juvenile detention, the loss of the vehicle, the loss of his driver license, the loss of his money, among other losses. Even then, it still won’t make up for the loss of the Nuri family. Mrs. Nuri and her surviving daughter are the ones you should feel sorry for.

Focus on what Rosen did to cause the accident. The best to come out of this will be lessons learned on how to prevent the same thing from happening in the future.

Not just of this POS but all the little wanna be’s letting these little sawed off POS run around acting like this and putting this out to try to compensate for their short stature and pea brains by trying to be “niggas” and black whatever that means? What lessons are being learned from this insanity, where are the role models for these kids to look up to and guide them – PARENTS??!!

If you are not monitoring you high school KID, and you are a parent, do be surprised if this coming your way very soon.

This is just confirming the type of people that Rosen represents. This makes me sick.

Go to:

and read the posts from Rosen’s FB before it was made unavailable.

Specifically the posts from Demitri Brandon Penuelas.

One in particular..Penuelas says the following in one of his posts:

“F those two people that died…you needa stop talkin, shit cause im not the nigga you want to be fing with.”

If You’re Not Outraged, You’re Not Paying Attention!

253 friend of the family April 9, 2012 at 9:35 AM

Amanda…I understand he is your friend, and I respect that he did not wake up planning to take out half of a family. However, he did make a series of very irresponsible choices, and I agree we all have. However, we have laws for a reason and we as a society have to follow them. Personally, I have never sped, because I didn’t want to kill anyone. In fact, I am 50 and have never had an accident, so don’t excuse him because ” everyone does it”. There is a difference between going 5 mph over limit, and total recklessness. Bef you judge me, go look at the damage to the building in person. Close your eyes and picture that it could have been you walking Dow. That street. What if you were a passenger with your good friend. Would you feel the same if you were in the hospital today, with half of your face still out there entangled in the windshield? If you have no empathy ( google it), at least try to understand it could have been you. If you ever have children, think back on this, and maybe then, you will understand why we are so angry. I knew those little girls. I hurt for Hannah, standing there next to her dead dad, watching them try to save her little sister. I hope sine good comes of this. Perhaps David would consider speaking of teens about living with what he had to live with, and I hope his friends, who think that behavior is cool, will change paths before this happens to them.

@ Paco Taco, “just a young cat in a fast SUV.”

He was driving way too fast and with his limited experience in driving. Unfortunately too many young people have no concept of death or how it may touch their lives. The arrogance of youth as we call it. Even I could not imagine becoming middle age and contemplating life in such a manner. Unfortunately when you act irresponsibly, your odds at facing death or despair go way up……

256 skippy April 9, 2012 at 9:53 AM

Idiot doesn’t even know what “yen” is. Didn’t his parents even wonder how he had enough money to buy the Escalade? And what about his cryptic comment that gas wouldn’t be a problem. Wonder if he’s one of the guys jacking gas from our cars at night. Why do teens today seem so proud of their ignorance?

257 anon April 9, 2012 at 9:57 AM

Tirrell Lavelle Dudley, Josh Cardone, David Rosen, all went to the Alliance program at Olympic High and now they have taken the lives of others. Maybe the Alliance program isn’t working.

259 Bob Loblaw April 9, 2012 at 10:06 AM

What a terrible tragedy.

I hope all the teen wannabee thugsters are taking note. Your stupid decisions have consequences. Your recklessness can destroy lives. Your stupidity can kill.

David Rosen is going to jail for a very long time and I hope every parent with a kid like him uses this sad event as a way to get through to them. Nobody is impressed with your stupid looking cars and the loud bass and the idiotc driving. Nobody is impressed with your faux gangster pretense,

These Crystl Ranch Mob wannabe gangsters are going nowhere in life except to jail, and jail is not a good place for tough kids from the suburbs. When you go to jail you meet real tough guys.
