Long-Randall and his girlfriend Gemily West, 23, were walking her four Australian cattle show dogs on the night of July 16 when they were struck by a Nissan Maxima at the intersection of Garfield Avenue and Engle Road. All four dogs were killed.

Long-Randall lost his leg in the accident but was recovering in the hospital when his condition suddenly took a drastic turn for the worse on Sunday.

West suffered a badly injured leg in the accident but is recovering at home after being released from the hospital.

The California Highway Patrol arrested Paul Walden, 31, a few days after the accident. Walden now may face additional charges related to Long-Randall’s death.

Walden is being held in the Sacramento County Jail without bail. He’s scheduled to appear in court again Aug. 8.
