Kaylee Ann Weisenberg, 22, was allegedly impaired, speeding and driving without a license when she hit California Highway Patrol officer Brett Oswald on June 22.
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 who was waiting with an abandoned vehicle for a tow truck.
On Tuesday, the District Attorney’s office charged Weisenberg with second-degree murder, gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs causing injury, and driving with a suspended license. Weisenberg remains in County Jail with bail set at $250,000.
