A man was charged with one count of intoxication assault and one count of intoxication manslaughter for a fatal car wreck in Irving Monday night.
According to Irving Police, Anthony Almanza, 39, of Grand Prairie, was heading south on South Belt Line Road in his 2004 Dodge pickup at around 8:50 p.m. when he failed to stop on a red light at East Trinity Boulevard.
Alamanza crashed into the back of a 2001 Nissan parked ahead of him. The strong impact caused the Nissan to hit the rear of a 2000 Kia.
The driver of the Nissan, 39-year-old Luis Andrade of Grand Prairie, and his passenger, 23-year-old Imelda Corea, were taken to the hospital. Andrade was pronounced dead at the hospital while Corea’s condition was listed in serious condition, Irving police said.
Almanza was also taken to the hospital for his injuries and was later on transferred to Irving jail as officers at the scene believe alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash. A mandatory blood draw was required due to the severity of the incident, police said.
