Two suspects arrested in fatal bicycle collision
CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) - SEPT. 16 UPDATE: The Nevada Department of Public Safety has arrested two people after a two-and-a-half month investigation into a fatal bicycle collision on US-395A in the Washoe Valley.
The DPS says a 2015 Ford Edge was traveling southbound, crossed the double yellow line and hit the bicyclist. Boryana Straubel, 38, of Washoe Valley died at the scene.
The two occupants of the Ford remained on scene. Investigators say Irma Arellano-Arroyo told troopers she was driving the car and Guadalupe Garcia-Davalos reportedly told troopers he was asleep in the front passenger seat at the time.
The NHP’s Multi-Disciplinary Investigation and Reconstruction Team (MIRT) developed information that raised concerns about the case. As a result of the investigation, detectives believe Arellano-Arroyo and Garcia-Davalos lied to the troopers.
