Man Arrested, Accused of Killing Cyclist in Chula Vista

Michael Reyes admitted he had been drinking prior to the collision at East J Street and Dennis Avenue that killed David Voigt of Chula Vista late Monday afternoon, according to Chula Vista police Lt. Lon Turner.

Shortly before 4:15 p.m., Reyes was driving a stolen silver Nissan Maxima westbound on East J Street when he suddenly crossed into oncoming traffic and struck Voigt as he was riding his bicycle, Turner said in a statement.

The Maxima continued onto a sidewalk after striking Voigt, eventually coming to rest after striking an SDG&E power pole and a tree.

Paramedics took both Voigt and Reyes to UCSD Medical Center, where Voigt died and Reyes was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The Maxima was stolen out of National City earlier in the day, Turner said, adding that property found inside the vehicle appeared to also be stolen.

Reyes faces multiple charges, Turner said.
