Two people have been arrested in connection with the June 19 crash that killed a bicyclist in Washoe Valley.
Boryana Straubel, 38, of Washoe Valley died at the scene.
The Ford Escort crossed the center line of the roadway and hit the bicyclist who was riding on the shoulder.
The occupants of the Ford Escort remained at the scene. Irma Arellano-Arrroyo told investigators she was driving and her passenger, Guadelupe Garcia-Davalos, said he was asleep.

He was charged a false report and conspiracy.
They were booked into the Washoe County Detention Center on Wednesday. The investigation was submitted to the Washoe DA’s office for review.
