Shortly After 11 a.m., a bicyclist was headed south on Los Berros Road near Pomeroy Road when he was struck by a Honda Accord driven by Michelle Yvonne Hart, 45, of Arroyo Grande. Hart’s car struck the back of the man’s bike ejecting him onto the road.
Even though he was wearing a helmet, the man suffered fatal head injuries.
Hart fled the scene, but was apprehended shortly after the accident. The man was not carrying any identification and his identity has not yet been discovered.
Officers arrested Hart on suspicion of driving under the influence, driving on a suspended or revoked license and gross vehicular manslaughter and booked her into the San Luis Obispo County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
