A 52-year-old man was arrested Friday after he reportedly ran a stop sign that resulted in a fatal collision with a 21-year-old Odessa man.
John Fitzgerald Hunt was charged with intoxication manslaughter, a second-degree felony.
The fatal collision happened at 4:57 p.m. last Saturday near the intersection of Andrews Highway and 100th Street, an Odessa Police Department release stated.
Nathan Subia, 21, of Odessa died as a result of the wreck. Subia was traveling north on Andrews Highway in a white 2003 GMC truck, the release detailed. The passenger in the truck was identified as 32-year-old Ernesto Sanchez of Andrews.
Hunt was traveling east on 100th Street and ran the stop sign before being struck by the GMC truck, the release detailed.
Subia was transported to MCH, but was later pronounced dead by medical personnel, the release stated. Sanchez was also transported to MCH with non-life-threatening injuries, but he was treated and released, a MCH official said over the phone on Monday. There were no reports of any other injuries.
Hunt was booked into the Ector County Law Enforcement Center and was still in custody as of Friday afternoon, jail records show. A bond had not been set as of Friday afternoon.
The investigation continues.
