Horacio Garcilazo Arrested in Merced Pedestrian Accident on G Street and Olive Avenue

MERCED, CA (December 5, 2023) – Thursday, Teri Lynn Wharton suffered injuries in a startling pedestrian crash on G Street and Olive Avenue.

The incident happened the night before Thanksgiving at the intersection of G Street and Olive Avenue in Merced. Reports confirmed that the victim was in the crosswalk when the crash occurred.

“Grave condition — she’s broken from head to toe, and she probably won’t walk again,” said Amanda Mendoza, Wharton’s niece. “She has a broken jaw, broken spine, broken hips, broken legs, ankles, all of it.”

According to reports, a suspected DUI driver Horacio Garcilazo struck her. Afterward, the suspect fled the scene. Meanwhile, authorities arrested him for felony DUI and felony hit-and-run. He has since bailed out.

“We want justice for my aunt. I want the person who hit her to have severe consequences for what he’s done to this angel,” said Mendoza. “She never not has a smile on her face. She’s the most cheerful, loving, kind, person.”

After the crash, the victim’s family set up a GoFundMe to assist her in the hospitalization.
