Police: Cyclist from Windsor injured in hit-and-run, suspect arrested

A Windsor woman was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of hit-and-run in connection with a crash involving a cyclist who suffered serious injuries late Monday night, police said.

Erica Mejia-Macias, 31, was arrested Tuesday morning on suspicion of driving without a license and hit-and-run causing personal injury, according to Windsor police.

The collision occurred around 11 p.m. on Monday near Windsor Road and Vintage Greens Drive, where police found a cyclist with injuries to his head, arms and legs.

The cyclist, whose name was not released, was struck from behind as he rode south on Windsor Road. Paramedics took him to a local hospital in critical condition.

According to police, vehicle parts were lying on the road near the scene of the accident. The part numbers led them to believe it was a silver Chevrolet HHR.

On Tuesday, around 10:30 a.m., police found a HHR with a broken windshield and front-end damage outside a home in the 3900 block of Mark West Station Road.

Mejia-Macias was identified as the registered owner of the vehicle and arrested at the scene, police said.

She has been held in the Sonoma County Jail since Tuesday evening.
