Car driver accused of manslaughter after Phoenix crash

Posted

PHOENIX (AP) — A driver has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after she allegedly ran a red light and collided with a motorcyclist, according to Phoenix police.

They said 58-year-old Timothy Jensen was waiting to make a left turn at an intersection when he was struck by a car about 6 a.m. Wednesday.

He later died from his injuries at a hospital.

Police said the driver of the car, 38-year-old Erin Jaco, displayed signs of impairment and was booked into jail.

It was unclear Wednesday night if Jaco has a lawyer yet for her case.
