ARLINGTON — A fourth person has died from injuries sustained in a one car crash that happened in Arlington last week.

Eighteen-year-old Christian Martinez died on Tuesday.

The crash happened in the 700 clock of Green Oaks Boulevard on October 10.

Police said the car went out of control and struck a tree, killing 21-year-old twin brothers, Michael and Stephen Eckel, and 19-year-old Danielle Ruthstrom.

One of the twins, Stephen Eckel, was driving. Investigators said it appears speed and alcohol were factors.

More flowers and mementos have shown up at the site of the crash.
