Tucson police identify man killed in 2-motorcycle collision
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Police in Tucson have identified a man killed in a collision between two motorcycles last week.
Sgt. Pete Dugan said Friday that 35-year-old Jeremy Teeter succumbed to his injuries Dec. 9.
According to investigators, Teeter was slowing down his motorcycle Dec. 2 when he was rear-ended by another motorcyclist.
The impact caused both riders to be thrown from their motorcycles.
Police say the second rider, identified as 33-year-old Zachary Roller, was riding a stolen motorcycle. Rider, whose injuries were not life-threatening, fled the scene but was arrested later that day.
He has since been booked into jail on possession of a stolen vehicle.
Authorities believe speed was a factor. There were no signs of impairment and both men had been wearing helmets.
