PHOENIX (AP) - A woman has been arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder in an Interstate 17 crash that killed a Phoenix motorcyclist.

Court documents show 33-year-old Leith Monroe was driving on a suspended license for a 2012 DUI conviction.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say 57-year-old Dennis Oddo died in Tuesday night’s accident.

They say Monroe allegedly was driving impaired at a high speed when she clipped the motorcycle and Oddo was thrown to the roadway.

A witness stopped and gave first aid and CPR to Oddo. He was transported to a hospital where he died.

Monroe stopped about a quarter mile from the scene and was taken into custody by DPS troopers.

She remains jailed on a $100,000 bond and didn’t have a lawyer at her initial court appearance Wednesday.
