Woman Pinned Under Car After Driver Fled the Scene in Hoopa

Humboldt County Sheriff badgeAbout 4:40 P.M., a woman, Andrea Hunsucker, was struck by a vehicle in the area of Airport Road near Hoopa. Hunsucker was “pinned underneath the vehicle,” according to Lt. Ken Swithenbank of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. “Citizens had to use jacks to get the victim out.”

Swithenbank said that the driver fled the scene. Later, Maggie Jones turned herself into Tribal Police, Swithenbank said. She is being charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

Hunsucker had moderate injuries but refused help.

Swithenbank said he doesn’t have all the details but that two males were also involved in the altercation. One allegedly had a gun which led to the report of an active shooter but, the lieutenant said that no shots were fired.

“There was no active shooter,” he explained.

  • So very glad that there was not a shooting!!!

    Thank you to the folks who responded and helped the lady struck by the vehicle.

    If you live your life doing fucked up shit to your community then don’t come crying when somebody runs over your ass!

  • There were shots fired. Everyone in the businesses and medical center heard the shots. Howcome they were on lock down.

  • people in the area heard at least 2-3 gunshots. is andrea still on the most wanted list?

  • So the unidentified threesome who ran over Andrea and/or waved guns around allegedly aka probably—they aren’t named. But the one somebody ran over who had moderate injuries but didn’t want first aid—is named?

    Oh okay. Sounds right. Just wanted to be sure I got the story somewhat right.Moving on.

  • Does Andrea Hunsucker still have Felony warrants?

    Will the HCSO pick her up at the hospital when she gets released?

    In listening to this on the scanner radio as this happened, I did not hear her name mentioned over the air.

        If you’re seriously defending Andrea Hunsucker by using words like “class” and “karma” then you must either be her, be a relative of hers (one that hasn’t been fucked over by her), or be someone just like her. I say this with complete confidence that it will not affect my karmatic balance!

  • Shots were fired!! My niece lives behind K’IMA:W and heard the shots!! That is what caused the clinic to go on lock down!! Why are they denying the shots? Miss Jones was fleeing from the shots, that’s how Miss Hunsucker was hit! They all scattered when the shots were fired! Or so the rumor mill says.

  • Drug deal gone bad known fact

  • Kimaw Medical Center Employee

    Shots were fired & the medical clinic was placed on lockdown.

  • Isn’t Hunsucker on most wanted list??
