Sheriff's deputy is waiting on verdict for hitting and killing 2 with patrol car

Civil case filed for victim's families

OILDALE, Calif. - A sheriff's deputy is waiting to hear if he will face criminal charges for hitting and killing two people in his patrol car last year in Oildale.

Crystal Jolly and Daniel Hiler were hit by deputy John Swearengin's patrol car as they crossed Norris Road at Diane Drive last year.

The CHP and the Multi-Disciplinary accident investigation team have sent their reports to the District Attorney's office.

Deputy D.A. Michael Yraceburn said there is no timetable for the filing of criminal charges in this case.

A Civil case has already been filed against the county by attorney's for families of Jolly and Hiller.

It's set for trial next August.
