A Mesa man was arrested and booked for manslaughter after he allegedly drove drunk and caused a crash that killed two people near Scarizona Scaregrounds Friday night.
According to court documents, 34-year-old Collin Reeves was driving a Ford F-250 truck eastbound on McKellips Road nearing the intersection of Alma School Road. The documents said witnesses reported Reeves ran a red light at the intersection.
Reeves' truck collided with another car making a left turn. Reeves told police he had been driving home from a work function and only remembers seeing a yellow light.
The two people inside the car, 20-year-old Audrianne Dillard and 21-year-old Jesel Torres, were killed in the collision. A dog in the back seat of the car was also killed, according to court documents.
Court documents show Reeves had a blood-alcohol content percentage of .145 at the time of the crash according to a preliminary breath test.
He was arrested and booked into the 4th Avenue Jail for two counts of reckless manslaughter.
Police said alcohol impairment was a "contributing factor for the collision."
