EL PASO — The driver in an overnight rollover crash, later identified to be Christopher Enriquez, 25, was taken to the hospital after he tried to walk away from the scene.
Two vehicles were involved in the crash on I-10 West near Mesa at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday. When officers arrived, they found a pickup truck flipped on its side, but there was no one inside the vehicle.
Witnesses reported seeing Hernandez crash the truck, then saw him walking near the Sunland Park ramp off I-10 East.
Police followed a bloody trail along Mesa Hills, and found Hernandez near the wall of a gated community. He was found to be intoxicated and then transported to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries. He now faces DWI charges.
