6/19/22, at approximately 0010 hours, Amanda Arney was walking eastbound on the south shoulder of SR-20, west of Sayre Avenue in Nice, CA. Party #1 (P-1) was driving eastbound on SR-20, west of Sayre Avenue at an unknown speed. For reasons still under investigation, P-1 allowed V-1 to veer onto the south shoulder, where V-1’s right front side collided into Arney. Arney was thrown down an embankment and came to rest near a fence, partially concealed by vegetation. After the collision, P-1 fled the scene in an easterly direction on SR-20 and failed to report the collision or check on Arney’s welfare.

On 6/19/22, at 0740 hours, Ukiah Communications Center was notified of a victim (Arney) at the location of the collision and dispatched the fire department and CHP to the scene. Fire department personnel arrived on scene and determined that Arney had succumbed to her injuries.

The CHP has identified a silver 2013 Toyota Sienna minivan with damage to the right front as a vehicle of interest. The vehicle’s right-side mirror and headlight assembly and windshield were damaged during the collision. Contact investigating Officer J. Skeen if you have any information about the collision or the vehicle at 707-279-0103, or email at
