5/6/2020 Wednesday around 11pm. The bicyclist was 61 y.o. Anthony Groth.
Driver was NB on 7th St; bicyclists was WB on Carol Ave. Police said the bicyclist failed to yield, (Carol Ave would have a stop sign). These directions were per fox10phoenix.com. The account at azfamily.com has a slightly different account, saying only that it was 7th Street “near” Hatcher. (Hatcher is parallel to and a few hundred feet south of Carol). So it’s not clear from the news statements whether or not it was at an intersection, or mid-block. The azcentral (Arizona Republic) has some apparent errors, sourced to the Phoenix Police spokesperson.
7th Street is the major (“arterial”) street; Hatcher is a collector, and Carol Ave is a minor street. There is a traffic signal at 7th/Hatcher; and stop signs on Carol at 7th.
The azfamily story also notes that the driver was evaluated for impairment, and some charge is pending without getting into specifics.
The Arizona Republic seems to have mangled something, there is no traffic light at Carol Ave.
…According to Sgt. Maggie Cox of the Phoenix Police Department, 61-year-old Michael Anthony Groth was riding his bike near Seventh Street and Hatcher Road just before 11 p.m. when he did not yield to a car heading north. The car, driven by a 26-year-old woman, hit Groth… The driver stayed on scene and was evaluated for impairment. Cox said charges are pending but she did not elaborate.
For the time being, it’s tagged as DUI / open case. From the police statements, it’s unlikely they believe the driver was at fault regardless of impairment; in other words, the charges are likely to be nothing more than a “simple” DUI were she to be found to be impaired at the time.
Damage to the car is concentrated on the left (driver’s side) front.

…Michael Anthony Groth was riding a bicycle westbound on Carol Avenue, near Hatcher Road and 7th Street, just before 11 p.m. Wednesday, Phoenix police Sgt. Maggie Cox said… Groth didn’t stop at a northbound traffic light, and he was struck by a Toyota Corolla driven by a 26-year-old woman, Cox said.
[this must be somehow mangled; there is no traffic light at Carol Ave.; There is a light at Hatcher, but the news reports do seem to agree the crash happened when the bicyclist was WB on Carol Ave.]
