San Luis Obispo police arrest hit-and-run suspect

December 8, 2022


San Luis Obispo police officers arrested a 46-year-old woman on Thursday who allegedly hit a bicyclist and then fled the scene on Tuesday evening, police said.

Shortly before 6 p.m. on Tuesday, a gray Toyota collided with a bicyclist near the intersection of Los Osos Valley Road and Madonna Road. The driver stopped at the Shell gas station at the intersection, confronted the bicyclist in the roadway and then fled, police said.

The bicyclist had suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported by an ambulance to a local hospital.

Investigators released surveillance images of the driver and her Toyota to the public, which led to the arrest of Andrea Wilson of San Luis Obispo.

Officers booked Wilson into the SLO County Jail on a charge of hit-and-run resulting in injury. She remains in custody in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Again everyone comes to a conclusion before all the facts are out. Maybe they both collided agreed no problems went on there way who knows wait and see

The press release described the suspect as between 20 and 30 yoa.

She stopped and “confronted” the cyclist; what was it he said that made her run off? “You’re going to jail!!!” or “I’m gonna sue you!!!” etc etc. Cyclists always claim to be the victim :/

3 sides to every story. Maybe the cyclist hit her or was the cause of the collision… or maybe not . She looks great for 46 . He or she with the most lug nuts typically comes out less scathed.

Another self absorbed and entitled SLO county resident. How much probation will she get?

Nothing destroys character faster than a sense of entitlement.
