Monterey County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a woman Monday who is accused of crashing a car into a tree and leaving the man in the passenger seat to die. Assisting the officers of the California Highway Patrol, sheriff’s deputies arrested 27-year-old Charlie Fleshman at her home in rural Parkfield, an unincorporated part of Monterey County, at 8:30 p.m.
On April 3 around 5:49 p.m., Fleshman was driving west on Vineyard Canyon Road, near King City, in a 2001 Mercury Sable. 41-year old Robinson Dylan of Parkfield was in the passenger seat, according to the California Highway Patrol. According to the CHP, Fleshman allowed the car to veer onto the north shoulder of the road, then over-corrected and lost control of the car. The Mercury spun counter-clockwise across both lanes of traffic and onto the south shoulder, where its passenger side-struck a tree and the rest of the car remained blocking the eastbound lane, according to the CHP.
According to the CHP, Fleshman got out of the car and left the scene. She was later found east of the collision site. Dylan however sustained serious injuries and did not get out of the car. Sometime after the crash, the car caught on fire. Dylan died at the scene. After Fleshman was located, she was taken to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center with moderate injuries, the CHP said. After she was arrested Monday, Fleshman was booked into the Monterey County Jail.
