A truck carrying three people has crashed in San Antonian, Texas, killing two people and injuring at least three others.
The driver of the truck, identified as 23-year-old Jose Hernandez, of San Antonio, was arrested on Friday, authorities said.
The other two people who were aboard the truck were not hurt, authorities added.
The incident is under investigation, according to San Antonio Police Department spokesman John Nieves.
“There was a collision between the truck and a tree,” said Nieves, adding that the truck was not a state-owned vehicle.
He did not give details on the crash.
The truck driver is not being charged, and police are looking into what happened.
“We’re trying to figure out what happened,” Nieves said.
Police say Hernandez, who was arrested in November for domestic violence, is suspected of running a car wash in San Marcos, a city in San Mateo County, near the Texas border.
The car wash is not a registered business.
The investigation is ongoing.
The area where the accident happened was covered by a sheet of thick yellow police tape, Nieves added.
He said authorities are still investigating whether the truck had been running with an expired tag or a license plate.
“Our detectives are looking at what happened and we are continuing to investigate that,” Nivers said.
He added that the city was aware of the incident and was “looking at our policies to make sure it does not happen again.”
On Thursday, police in Texas said Hernandez had a warrant for his arrest for driving under the influence.
He had been arrested at least four times since February, when he was charged with DUI, according a statement from the Travis County District Attorney’s office.
Authorities have said he had been under the care of the same care facility in Austin.
Authorities said they had not released any details about the incident because they did not have enough information.
In April, Hernandez pleaded not guilty to charges that he had assaulted a woman and damaged her property.
Authorities did not release details of the assault, but said he admitted to punching the woman in the face, hitting her several times in the head and head and chest, and choking her.
He also admitted to cutting his wrists and fingers.
The victim was hospitalized for about two weeks.
Authorities had said at the time that Hernandez was in the custody of Travis County Jail, where he was being held on $20,000 bail.
