Woman arrested in death of a pedestrian

A woman wanted for an accident involving the death of a pedestrian was booked into the Tom Green County Jail Sunday.

Brandi Weidner allegedly hit and killed Gunner McNeil in the 3700 block of North Bryant Boulevard  in December 2014. McNeil was found dead on the side of the road.

According to law enforcement, there were indications McNeil had been hit by a vehicle and the driver failed to stop and render aid.

Several days later, the San Angelo Police Department received an anonymous tip linking Weidner’s damaged car to the incident. Police located the vehicle and Weidner, who told police she thought she hit a deer.

Subsequent to the investigation and evidence collected, the investigator requested the charge and warrant. Weidner was arrested at her home on Raccoon Road.
