A Tucson woman was arrested after a bicyclist was struck and killed by a car while riding in a bike lane early Thursday morning.
Police arrested Nichole Jacinto, 23, at her apartment after finding her vehicle, a 1996 Honda that was suspected in the crash, at her apartment complex.
A witness who saw the crash just after midnight followed the vehicle and provided police with a description and location, police said.
The 58-year-old victim was riding south in the bike lane of Oracle Road when he was struck from behind near Jacinto Street, police said. He was taken to a Tucson hospital, where he died.
The victim's identity was withheld pending notification of family, police said.
Jacinto was booked into the Pima County Jail on one count of second-degree murder and leaving the scene of a fatal collision.
Police said Jacinto exhibited signs of intoxication and she was tested for driving under the influence, the results of which were not known.
