The Santa Barbara District Attorney will decide Tuesday what charges will be filed against 28 year-old L. Tyrone Richardson of Santa Barbara.
Richardson was arrested Friday night in connection with the death of Allison Meadows, also of Santa Barbara, who was killed last week in Montecito.
26 year-old Meadows of Santa Barbara was killed early Wednesday morning of last week. 25 year-old Lindsay Keebler, also of Santa Barbara, was seriously hurt. On Friday, the California Highway Patrol arrested one of the two men who brought the women to the hospital.
The men told authorities they were passing through the area.
The CHP told KSBY that Richardson was, in fact, the driver of the SUV involved in the crash, and that Meadows and Keebler were actually passengers in that same vehicle when they were hurt.
A CHP officer said there's two possible situations they're looking at right now; Keebler and Meadows could have been ejected from the sun roof or they could have been car surfing.
The CHP said only one vehicle, a 2006 Toyota 4-Runner, was involved in the collision.
The men who brought the women to the hospital told investigators they were driving by and spotted the injured women. But after several interviews with Keebler, the CHP said they learned Richardson was one of the "good samaritans" who brought her and Meadows to the hospital.
As for the other man, the CHP isn't saying much about him.
As investigators continue to sort out what happened last Wednesday morning, a memorial service was held for Allison Meadows Monday in Santa Barbara.
Richardson is being held on $500,000 bail in the Santa Barbara County Jail.
