PHOENIX (AP) — A 19-year-old Phoenix 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.
They say Dollar was pronounced dead at the scene.
