PHOENIX — A 19-year-old woman has been accused of manslaughter and marijuana possession after allegedly driving impaired and fatally striking a bicyclist, Phoenix police say.
Annaleah Dominguez was driving in the wrong direction up South Mountain to avoid another bicyclist in front of her Sunday morning when she struck 36-year-old Robert Dollar, police said. Dollar was pronounced dead at the scene.
Dominguez admitted to officers of recently drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana, police said. Dominguez showed signs of impairment and was booked into jail, police said.
She didn't have a lawyer at her initial court appearance Monday, where her bond was set at $2,500.
Dominguez faces a Nov. 8 preliminary hearing in her case.
