Deputies arrested a Los Lunas woman accused of fleeing a crash that left a bicyclist dead last week in the South Valley. The Albuquerque Journal is reporting 32 year old Heather Wood, has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death or great bodily harm, and careless driving in the April 10 crash that killed 28-year-old Troy Nichols. Bernalillo County deputies responded to the crash around 4 a.m. on and found Nichols dead near the bicycle he had been riding. An anonymous tip came in Tuesday morning that led deputies to Wood’s home. She told deputies she swerved to avoid something she thought was a traffic cone. She said she got out of her vehicle but didn’t see or hear anything, so she left.
