IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – Irving Police have arrested a 39-year-old man for his role in a multi-vehicle crash that killed a driver and seriously injured another.

Anthony Almanza of Grand Prairie remains in police custody on one count of Intoxication Manslaughter and one count of Intoxication Assault.

The crash occurred on Monday night just before 9:00 p.m. in the 1300 block of S. Belt Line Road approaching Trinity Boulevard.

Almanza was driving his 2004 Dodge pickup truck southbound but failed to stop at a red light and rear-ended a 2001 Nissan that was stopped. The impact pushed the Nissan into the back of a 2000 Kia that was stopped in front of it.

The driver of the Nissan, 39-year-old Luis Andrade of Grand Prairie, was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. His passenger, 23-year-old Imelda Corea, is listed in serious condition. The driver of the Kia was uninjured.

Almanza was injured in the crash and was transported to the hospital.

Officers on scene suspected alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash and initialized a DWI investigation. Once released from the hospital, Almanza was arrested and booked in jail. Due to the severity of the accident, a mandatory blood draw was required.

The blood results are pending and the investigation is ongoing.
