Five days before she was scheduled for her most recent court appearance, Vanessa Carrillo was cited for driving on a suspended license. Her license had been revoked about two weeks earlier, according to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Since 2008, court records show Carrillo has incurred five other traffic violations.
Carrillo is accused of hitting 27-year-old cyclist Patrick O’Connor from behind with her 1999 Toyota while driving westbound on Fulkerth Road, just east of North Blaker Road, on Sept. 1. She faces criminal charges of felony hit-and-run resulting in injury and misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.
O’Connor, a tax consultant from Sacramento who was in Turlock on business, was reportedly in training for an Iron Man competition at the time.
During a March 30 hearing, Carrillo’s case was postponed until Wednesday, April 6. On that date, a judge will consider the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office’s request that a bail be set for Carrillo, claiming she may be a flight risk.
