BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A suspected drunken driver has been charged in a crash that killed a motorcyclist who was stopped at a red light.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1JwDFBJ) 34-year-old Travis Michael Dedmore was charged with vehicular homicide while under the influence on Monday in the death of 56-year-old Rodney L. Bayman.

Charging documents say Bayman was waiting at a traffic light Sunday when he was hit by a truck and pushed hundreds of feet. Investigators found no evidence that the driver tried to stop.

Dedmore failed to perform sobriety tests and refused to take a breath alcohol test, saying at the county jail that he was delirious and sleep deprived. His blood sample is being analyzed.

Dedmore’s bond was set at $100,000. His next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 3.
