ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say a 20-year-old woman is facing vehicular homicide charges after she struck and killed a motorcyclist who was stopped at red light.

Police spokesman Tanner Tixier says alcohol and speed appear to be a factor in Saturday morning’s crash. He identified the driver as Gabrielle Moya and said she had been arrested just weeks earlier on a charge of aggravated DWI.

The 54-year-old victim was headed east on Montgomery when he stopped at a traffic light. Officers say Moya was speeding and didn’t stop at the light. She rear-ended the man and he died at the scene.

Police did not immediately release the man’s name.
