Tucson Bicyclist killed crossing Wetmore Road

This  showed up on review of the 2015 ASDM data, although I had missed it at the time. The only news I could find list just vague information, and nothing about how the crash occurred.

12/30/2015, 9:20pm(dark). Bicyclist was southbound CROSSING ROAD, and crash was NOT_AT_INTERSECTION /  NOT_JUNCTION_RELATED (i.e mid-block). Bicyclist was struck in the two-way turn lane.

Driver eastbound in LANE1 and was faulted for UNSAFE LANE CHANGE (presumably into the two-way turn lane).

Confusing.  Surprising it was faulted to the motorist, and that there was NO IMPROPER to bicyclist.
