WCSO Traffic Deputies Make Arrest for Felony Hit and Run to Bicyclist

This morning Christina ROJAS, 34 yoa, of 5362 Northwest Road in Bellingham was arrested for Felony Hit and Run and booked into the Whatcom County Jail.  The arrest stems from an investigation of a traffic collision involving a bicyclist hit by a vehicle as he rode to work on November 3rd at 0725 in the morning. 

 The bicyclist was wearing reflective clothing, a helmet, and had two headlights and a tail light activated.  It appears that ROJAS pulled out in front of the cyclist in the 5300 block of Northwest Road, causing him to strike her vehicle and crash.  The 24 year old male was transported to the hospital for treatment and later released.

 WCSO Deputies checked the area looking for the vehicle initially described as a silver “Jeep” type in design.  They located a silver 2005 Nissan Xterra with damage to the front fender.  Rojas was contacted and interviewed. She initially told investigators that she thought she had hit a deer, and had stopped to check her vehicle but did not report the collision to police or call 911 at the time.
