A 19-year-old Roanoke woman faces an intoxication manslaughter charge after a collision with a motorcycle Saturday evening that left its rider dead.
Witnesses told police that Nefthali Rosales was traveling south out of the Texas Motor Speedway parking lot about 6:20 p.m. and had her cellphone in her hand, either texting or dialing, when she ran a stop sign at Allison Avenue and Highway 114, according to Sharron Neal, a police spokeswoman.
Mitchell Marks, who was westbound in the middle lane of the highway, braked but was unable to stop. His motorcycle T-boned the Honda, sending him flying over the car onto the roadway, where he struck his head, Neal said.
Marks, of Keller, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Rosales was arrested on suspicion of intoxication manslaughter. She remained in the Mansfield jail Monday with bail set at $45,000.
Earlier in the day, another motorcyclist was killed in a single-vehicle wreck in south Fort Worth.
Everett Winters was riding his motorcycle in the 5100 block of Risinger Road about 4:15 a.m. when police say he struck an unknown object, possibly the curb, and lost control.
Winters was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:40 p.m.
The medical examiner’s office lists Winter’s home address as in Eldon, Missouri.
