ARLINGTON, (AP) — Three people have been killed in an Arlington crash involving a suspected drunken driver.
Police say 38-year-old Eldrick Westbrook ran a red light early Sunday in Arlington before hitting another vehicle with four people inside. The vehicle spun into a traffic light pole, killing one person at the scene. Two others were taken to a hospital but died of their injuries. The fourth person suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Spokeswoman Tiara Richard says the three people who died as a result of the crash are women in their early to mid-20s.
Westbrook has been charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter and is in custody at the Arlington city jail. His bail has not been set. It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.
