Police say the driver of a car made an unsafe lane change that led to a crash that seriously injured longtime Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry last month.

According to Tucson police reports, a 75-year-old driver merged from the right to left lane before striking another vehicle and causing it to careen into a downtown intersection and knock Huckelberry off his bike on Oct. 23.

The Arizona Daily Star reported Thursday that police reviewed surveillance footage taken from a nearby business to confirm the incident.

The car driver was cited for causing an accident resulting in serious physical injury or death and making an unsafe lane change.

She has a Nov. 16 court hearing.
