ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A grand jury has indicted a 17-year-old Anchorage driver on two felony counts in the death of bicyclist in July.

The Alaska Dispatch News (https://bit.ly/1q0VkUj) reports Alexandra Ellis was indicted on counts of manslaughter and failing to assist an injured person after an accident in the death of 51-year-old Jeffery Dusenbury.

She’s also charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Police say Dusenbury was struck by a pickup while riding July 19 on a south Anchorage street.

Investigators say Ellis was driving in the same direction as the bicycle but decided she was heading the wrong way.

Police say she stopped, backed up, struck the bicycle and drove off.

Dusenbury was wearing a helmet but died within an hour after the crash.
