Drunk Woman Fatally Hits Man, Drives a Mile With Him in Her Windshield: Cops
Esteysi Izazaga AKA Stacy Sanchez of Oceanside, California, is accused of drunkenly hitting a man then speeding off, with the man still on her car.
A California woman is behind bars after police say she drunkenly hit a man with her car and continued to drive for a mile with him lodged in her windshield.
Oceanside Police say Esteysi Izazaga Sanchez aka Stacy Sanchez was intoxicated when she hit the unnamed victim at random after her car ran onto a sidewalk early Monday morning.
Witnesses told NBC San Diego that Sanchez, 29, was driving so fast and the impact was so intense that the male victim's leg detached from his body and wound up flying through the back window and onto the trunk of the car.
Sanchez allegedly drove to a neighborhood cul-de-sac before leaving the scene.
Officers found Sanchez a short time later at her home and took her into custody, Oceanside police spokesman Ryan Keim told KFMB.
Sanchez was booked on suspicion of five felonies, including gross vehicle manslaughter, DUI and hit and run, according to online arrest records.
Sanchez is set to be arraigned on Thursday. Bail has been set at $1.5 million.
