The drunk driver who struck two women on El Dorado Hills Boulevard in 2008 is in an El Dorado County jail after nearly two years on the run.

Using Masterqueue technology from the El Dorado Hills-based Intellaegis, district attorney investigators were able to track Brandi Morgan Thomas to Florida and Tennessee, with an endpoint in Michigan where investigators, with assistance from Michigan state police, arrested her. The 24-year-old woman was extradited to El Dorado County on April 28, where she is being held on $425,000 bail.

In 2009 Brandi Morgan Thomas was convicted of the 2008 DUI incident that changed the lives of cyclists Kathi Sturgeon and Kathy Hurd. Thomas veered into the bike lane on El Dorado Hills Boulevard and struck the women, causing “life-changing major injuries,” a press release states. She served some time in jail and was sentenced to a seven years in prison, a punishment suspended in favor of a five-year formal probation period that included an “obey all laws” clause.

Thomas was arrested in August 2011 on suspicion of burglary, forgery and conspiracy to commit a crime. She fled the county and eluded capture until late April.
