A California man crashed into a taco truck, killing one, and then fled the area with a beer in hand, police said.
Now, the suspect has been charged with murder for the incident.
Around 7 p.m. on Oct. 9, police said they arrived at the scene of a van that collided with a taco truck in Fresno, California.
Officials said the driver was holding a beer can when he got out of the van and ran away before officers arrived.
However, police said they arrested the suspect, 45-year-old Rolando Enrique Alvarenga-Aguilar, at a home shortly afterward. He was drunk at the time of the crash, authorities claimed.
Investigators said a 60-year-old man was hit in the crash and taken to a local hospital, where he was listed as “critical but stable,” Your Central Valley reported. The victim died on Oct. 18.
After the victims death, police said Alvarenga-Aguilar was charged with murder, gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, driving with a blood alcohol concentration in excess of .08 causing great bodily injury, hit-and-run following an injury collision and several other charges.
In addition, he is facing charges for another case from 2019, officials said.
Alvarenga-Aguilar was booked into jail and his bail was set at $1.6 million, police said.
