Man arrested in Tucson crash that killed bicyclist

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Police in Tucson say a suspect is in custody in connection with a crash that killed a bicyclist.

They say 25-year-old Gerardo Luna Cazares is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder and criminal damage. It's unclear if he has lawyer yet.

Police say 38-year-old Kris Lee Chambers was fatally struck by a car about 6 a.m. Wednesday while riding her bicycle near downtown Tucson.

They say Cazares allegedly ran a red light and may have been impaired by drugs at the time of the accident.

Chambers was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Arizona Daily Star reports Cazares has several traffic infractions in Tucson City Court, but none for driving impaired.

In January 2013, Cazares was found guilty in Pima County Justice Court of three counts of disorderly conduct.
