ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A 19-year-old Roswell man has been arrested in connection with a multi-vehicle crash in northeast Albuquerque that left one person dead and four others injured, police said Sunday.
Albuquerque police said Casino Salazar is jailed on suspicion of homicide by vehicle and other charges.
Police said the crash occurred around 7 p.m. Saturday and involved three cars and a motorcycle.
One person was pronounced dead at the scene.
The name, age and hometown of the victim hasn’t been released yet.
Police said Casino Salazar’s SUV allegedly was speeding down a street before crashing into a car with five people inside.
They said the driver was killed and all four passengers were taken to a hospital.
Police said they believe Salazar was driving impaired and officers reported funding several containers of alcohol in his vehicle along with guns and marijuana.
It was unclear Sunday if Salazar has a lawyer yet for his case.
