CHP arrests woman in death of motorcyclist in Orangevale

A Fair Oaks woman was arrested today on suspicion of hit and run for her alleged involvement in a crash that killed a motorcyclist.

Amanda K. Horn, 29, was arrested by California Highway Patrol officers who had been looking for a driver whose actions contributed to the death of a 55-year-old motorcyclist Tuesday night in Orangevale.

CHP spokesman Officer Jasper Begay said that at about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday a driver in a car traveling eastbound pulled up to the stop sign on Jonnie Way at Hazel Avenue. Hazel Avenue does not have a stop sign at the location.

Officers said the driver stopped at the sign then accelerated onto Hazel Avenue where the car was hit by a Mercedes traveling southbound on Hazel.

The motorcyclist was also traveling southbound in another lane on Hazel Avenue. The Mercedes also struck the motorcycle, knocking the rider from his vehicle.

The motorcyclist died at the scene.

The driver of the car that drove into traffic on Hazel Avenue from Jonnie Way stopped, but then drove away, said Begay. Horn was arrested Wednesday morning. The crash is under investigation.
