Reward Offered for Information About Fatal Hit and Run Near Tiburon

The family of a San Francisco woman is offering a $12,000 reward for information about a fatal hit-and-run vehicle collision in March, the California Highway Patrol said.

Marie Noelle Siegenthaler, 29, was riding a 2012 Yamaha south on U.S. Highway 101 near Tiburon around 10 p.m. on March 26 when her motorcycle was struck from behind, the CHP said. Siegenthaler was ejected and landed on the highway where she was struck 30 to 60 seconds later by a Volkswagen Tiguan that remained at the scene, the CHP said. Siegenthaler died there. Evidence indicates the hit-and-run vehicle is either a 1999 to 2002 Chevrolet Silverado pickup or a 2000 to 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe, CHP Officer Andrew Barclay said.

The collision would have caused moderate to major damage to the front right side of the vehicle, and the vehicle’s turn signal light and day-time running light/parking light lens would have been shattered out along with part of the right front fender, Barclay said. The $12,000 reward is for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the individual who fled from the scene.

Anyone with information about the hit-and-run collision is asked to contact CHP Officer Kevin Giannone at (415) 924-1100 or call (800) 835-5247.
