GARLAND, Texas — A 30-year-old man was arrested in a fatal crash that killed two people in Garland early Sunday morning, police said.
Gustavo Huerta Jr. faces a charge of intoxication manslaughter, according to a police news release.
The crash happened about 2:30 a.m. on westbound Texas 66, between Dexham and Centerville roads.
Police said it appeared that an SUV, driven by Huerta, rear-ended a car, causing it to hit a concrete barrier and overturn into a ditch. The car then caught fire, and two people inside the car died.
Police said Huerta stayed at the scene. The investigation "led officers to believe Huerta was impaired," the news release said. More information was not released.
Huerta was arrested and taken to the Garland jail. His bond had not yet been set Sunday morning.
The victims of the crash have not been identified. Police are still investigating the crash.
