Police make arrest in Alamo Square area hit-and-run of three bicyclists

Police have made an arrest in the hit-and-run collision that injured three bicyclists near Alamo Square earlier this month, Officer Grace Gatpandan said Tuesday.

Bianca Lopez, a 25-year-old Fremont resident, reportedly surrendered to police Friday after she was publicly identified as the suspect.

Lopez is accused of driving a black Jeep Cherokee that rammed another vehicle near the intersection of Fell and Scott streets about 5:40 p.m. April 2. The Jeep then fled south on Scott Street, but in the northbound lane, striking three bicyclists — one of whom was thrown at least 20 feet.

The Jeep then continued south on Scott Street in the southbound lanes and struck a parked Toyota Corolla.

The Jeep continued on and was later found abandoned in South San Francisco.

Two of the bicyclists' injuries were considered minor, but the third sustained life-threatening injuries, including a fractured pelvis, compact fracture of an arm and a lacerated liver.

Lopez was booked into County Jail on felony hit-and-run charges causing injury, misdemeanor hit-and-run involving property damage and for driving without a license, Gatpandan said. Her bail was set at $100,000.
