Dallas, TX (5/29/2020) – Three people are now dead after a drunk driver ran a red light and caused a crash early Monday in Dallas.
The accident happened when 23-year-old Jose Arroyo was speeding in an SUV, ran a red light, and slammed into a car.
The crash killed Ernesto Deleon, 47, Ashley Deleon, 18, and Leslie Deleon, 19, while the girls’ mother – Laura Sanchez-Quiroz – was sent to a local hospital’s intensive care unit.
Jose Arroyo faces three counts of intoxication manslaughter and one count of intoxication assault. He is being held at Dallas County Jail on a $350,000 bond.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
