An SUV just outside of Tucson hit a motorcyclist killing him when crossing into on coming traffic. A Pima County Sheriff's Deputy said a small bag of marijuana was found in the SUV by investigators. The driver was a 39-year-old woman whose name was not released.Deputies had no probable cause for arrest at the time of the accident so the woman was released after taking a sample from her blood. The woman can face charges if samples show that she was impaired while driving.
The woman was driving along a road when she crossed the line and hit 55-year-old motorcyclist in a head-on collision. The woman suffered minor injures while Purdy was pronounced dead after being airlifted to a hospital.
