Kaylee Weisenberg, 22, remains in County Jail on a bail of $56,500 after being released from Twin Cities Hospital in Templeton where she was treated for minor injuries following the accident.
Officer Brett Oswald, 47, was killed Sunday around 6:30 p.m. while waiting on the side of the road for an abandoned car to be towed.
Weisenberg was driving a Toyota Corolla northbound on South River Road in Paso Robles. She turned a corner at high speed near Spanish Camp Road and lost control of her car. Her car slammed into Oswald’s parked vehicle, pushing it forward to where it struck Oswald.
Weisenberg was arrested on charges of felony vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and driving on a suspended license.
A memorial service for Oswald is being planned for Friday at the Paso Robles Events Center.
