A Cayucos woman who ran down two cyclists Monday afternoon killing one and seriously injuring the other has been charged with manslaughter.
Shortly before noon, Jessica Whitney Goddard, 29, was driving southbound on Highway 1 near Main Street in Morro Bay when she allegedly veered right and struck two men from Los Osos. A 65-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His cycling companion, a 60-year-old man, was transported to Stanford University Medical Center.
Officers booked Goddard into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of vehicular manslaughter, reckless driving and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Her bail has been set at $105,000.
