HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - Police say the woman who hit and killed two cyclists did not have a license and had been stopped hours earlier for speeding.

Hampton Deputy Police Chief Richard Sawyer tells the Portsmouth Herald (http://bit.ly/1fc1LnU) that 20-year-old Darriean Hess, of Seabrook, was stopped at 12:46 a.m. Saturday for speeding in the same area where the crash happened eight hours later.

He says she didn't have a license. She was ticketed and ordered her to wait for a friend to drive her car away.

Police say Hess was driving again around 8:30 a.m. Saturday when her vehicle crossed the centerline and hit four cyclists participating in a 100-mile ride.

Two riders died.

The investigation continues. Sawyer says Hess took a blood test that will check for alcohol or other substances.
