The driver of the truck that struck and killed a bicyclist on Dec. 30 has been arrested and charged with manslaughter in the first degree, DUII, reckless driving and three counts of recklessly endangering another.

At 3:21 pm, Deschutes County Sheriff's deputies responded to an accident involving a pickup truck and a bicyclist near Dobb's Road and Obernolte Road.

Police say Shantel Witt, a 41-year-old resident of Alfalfa, was driving her gray 2002 GMC Sierra pickup eastbound on Dobbs Road when she failed to negotiate a curve near the intersection of Obernolte Road. Police say her truck crossed through the opposite lane, striking 38-year-old Marika Stone who was riding her bicycle on the westbound shoulder. Stone died at the scene.

Two other bicyclist who were riding with Stone were uninjured in the accident.

Witt was released from Deschutes County Adult Jail after posting 10 percent of the $270,000 bail.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to call the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office at 541-693-6911.
