A 29-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly striking and killing a bicyclist with his car Sunday night, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

Just after 7:30 p.m. Jesus Alfredo Trillo was exiting northbound Interstate 17 on the Glendale Avenue off-ramp when he struck a bicyclist.

DPS says Trillo fled the scene and drove several miles east and south before eventually re-entering I-17 and crashing on the Dunlap off-ramp at Townley Avenue.

As troopers got on scene, they observed impairment from Trillo and arrested him on multiple charges.

The bicyclist, identified as 58-year-old Ernest Sherfield of Salome, Arizona later died from his injuries.

Trillo was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on charges of Manslaughter, Aggravated DUI, Felony Hit and Run, Aggravated DUI, and Possession of Narcotic Drug Charges.
