A 23-year-old woman was free on bail Friday following her arrest on suspicion of DUI and gross vehicular manslaughter in connection with a Desert Hot Springs crash that killed a motorcyclist.

Mia Janae Perry of Rialto was arrested after the 10 p.m. Thursday collision. According to Desert Hot Springs police, Perry was trying to drive across Pierson Boulevard at Highway 62 but failed to yield to traffic, causing a man riding a Harley-Davidson to crash into her Toyota Solara.

The motorcyclist, identified by the coroner’s office as 55-year-old Jon Sherwood, died at the scene, police said.

Perry is tentatively expected to make her initial court appearance at the Larson Justice Center Dec. 30.
