The collision occurred shortly after 9 p.m. in the 2300 block of Southeast 122nd Avenue. Police said Omar veered out of the bike lane and ran into a car heading the same direction.

Omar was not wearing a helmet during the crash. Investigators later determined he was under the influence of alcohol.

The driver, 33-year-old Nicolette Ivy Duffus, remained at the scene. She was cited for driving with a suspended license, driving uninsured and failing to register a vehicle.

Police say Omar may be cited after the investigation is complete.
