Monday, San Luis Obispo police arrested the motorist who investigators say struck and killed a couple and their dog in November on Sacramento Drive. Daniel Angel Saligan Patricio, 24, of San Luis Obispo, allegedly lost control of his vehicle in the 3400 block of Sacramento Drive on November 21 and struck Matthew Chachere, Jennifer Besser, and their dog. After family members reported them missing, their bodies were located more than a day later in dense undergrowth.
According to police, Patricio either did not know or did not inform officers that he had struck a person while they were on the site investigating the collision. The vehicle was transported after it collided with a curb, a street sign, and a portion of a bridge, as documented in a traffic accident report. Patricio was released because he was not suspected of intoxicated driving.
The force of the collision, according to the police, evidently threw the couple into a creek area where they could not be seen in the dark. Investigators believe that excessive speed contributed to the accident. Police say Patricio was issued an arrest warrant on Monday morning, more than three months after the collision. He was reportedly arrested by detectives at his place of employment and booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail with a $200,000 bond.
