PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A cyclist who was struck and killed by a motorist Sunday has been identified.

The Portland Police Bureau says 32-year-old Lance T. Hart died before emergency responders arrived at the scene around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

Police say investigators believe 21-year-old Nicholas P. Martinez was under the influence of alcohol when he drove into Hart. Police say Martinez cooperated at the scene and was arrested on charges of second-degree manslaughter, reckless driving and DUI.

It wasn’t immediately known if Martinez has a lawyer.

Police say this was the 27th traffic-related death in 2019.
