Flagstaff police say a California tow truck driver involved in a fatal accident Friday that left one bicyclist dead and several others injured is no longer in custody at the Coconino County jail.


A tow truck ran a red light and collided with a group of bicyclists at a Flagstaff intersection, killing one and injuring at least four others, police said Saturday.
