Santa Maria woman dead after being struck by car

A Santa Maria woman is dead and her boyfriend is in jail after his vehicle somehow struck her Tuesday night.

The victim, 20 year-old Antoinette Raygoza, was a part-time employee at the city's Department of Recreation and Parks. The driver is 30 year-old Jack Misiaszek.

It happened on the 1600 block of McClelland at about 10:30 PM.

Police are still investigating what exactly happened last night.

"She's a good person. She didn't deserve what happened," said the victim's best friend, Talenna Carr.

According to witnesses, Raygoza and her boyfriend, Jack Misiaszek, has been arguing inside a house. "According to witnesses, he was leaving the residence to kind of get away from the argument all together," said Rico Flores of the Santa Maria Police Department.

Police said Raygoza followed her boyfriend outside. Witnesses said she hit him through his open car window, as he was trying to drive away. They said she held on to the side view mirror and lost her grip.

"Should he have taken off? Should he have stopped? That's all going to be coming out at the end of the investigation," said Flores.

Raygoza was taken to Marian Medical Center where she died. But how she did is still under investigation.

Misiaszek was arrested and booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail for gross vehicular manslaughter. His bail is set at $50,000.00.
