SAN ANTONIO — A 14-year old girl faces a charge of intoxication manslaughter following an accident on the city's south side this past weekend that killed one person.
Police say that the teenager was driving a blue Ford Fusion southbound in the 6500 block of Padre Drive around 10:15 Saturday night. Four passengers were in the vehicle.
The car was traveling “at a high rate of speed,” according to a police report, when the driver lost control. The car drove onto a curb and through a wire fence before colliding with a tree.
The passenger who was riding in the front passenger seat was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders. She has been identified as 15-year-old Raylina Rose Arizola. The other passengers were taken to University Hospital with minor injuries.
