Nirav Tolia’s hit and run case
In May 2014, Tolia was charged with felony hit-and-run for allegedly fleeing a crash on Highway 101 in Brisbane, California that left a woman named Patrice Motley injured. According to a report in Forbes, Tolia “merged suddenly into another lane on 101 just south of San Francisco and caused a woman to lose control of her car and spin into the centre median, injuring her hand and neck.” “It’s ironic that the CEO of a company that is holding itself out as trying to promote neighbourliness, crime watch and things like that flees the scene of an accident that he caused and doesn’t bother to call 911 or stay around to exchange information or see if he caused any injuries,” said the woman’s attorney, Joseph Brent to SF Gate.
Tolia’s charge was later reduced to a misdemeanour hit and run causing injury for the crash. He pleaded no contest and was sentenced immediately to 30 days in county jail and a $239 fine. He however served 30 days of community service in lieu of jail time. “His defence attorneys gave us a full background on what this guy is, what he’s done, how he’s a pretty community-oriented person, and that’s something,” San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe explained. “And his description of what occurred … He didn’t know he had a duty to call in, as opposed to someone who said, ‘I knew I screwed up and was trying to get away.'”
Nirav Tolia is married to his longtime girlfriend Megha Trivedi Tolia. Nirav and his wife Megha have three children, all are boys. He lives in a private house in California but is often seen on vacation in Italy. Tolia sold one of his houses in San Francisco for $25 million.
