LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - An Oakdale woman accused of hitting and killing a bicyclist last week has been arrested in connection with the incident.

Louisiana State Police say Lacey Jade Jordan, 27, was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado on U.S. 165, south of Alexandria, when she struck and killed Alexandria man Taurus McQuarn, 50, who was riding a bicycle. Both were traveling south. Authorities say Jordan then fled the scene.

Jordan was arrested on counts of negligent homicide, hit-and-run, careless operation, and limitations on passing bicycles.

Authorities confirmed to KPLC that Jordan was also involved in a fatal hit-and-run involving a bicyclist on U.S. 165 in November 2012.
