Oceanside woman arrested for 2 hit-and-runs
An Oceanside woman was arrested and charged in connection with two hit-and-runs that happened on Christmas morning.
Police say Donna Pugliese, 48, drove down Warwick Road before turning onto Long Beach Road where she hit one victim in their car. Then Pugliese is said to have struck the same car again before fleeing the scene. Police add that just minutes later, a father and his 8-year-old child were rear-ended on Austin Boulevard.
Officials say Pugliese later drove the wrong way on a one-way street and abandoned her Mercedes Benz. She was arrested at her home on Daly Boulevard in Oceanside hours later.
