A Commerce City man has been arrested for investigation of vehicular homicide and hit-and-run after he allegedly struck and killed a motorcyclist with his car in Douglas County and then walked away from the crash.
Manuel Frias-Cabrera, 29, also is under investigation for unlawful possession of a controlled substance and careless driving resulting in wrongful death, said a Douglas County Sheriff’s Office tweet.
The name of the deceased motorcycle rider has not been released.
Frias-Cabrera will be held on a $50,000 bond at the Douglas County Detention Facility, a sheriff’s news release said.
“While this is still an open and active investigation, traffic investigators do believe that drugs and or alcohol may have been a factor,” the news release said.
