Police arrested the driver accused of running over and killing an El Paso man this past weekend.
Gerardo Roberto Ayala, 20, was arrested Tuesday night in connection with a crash that killed Joel Olivas, 19, at about 2:13 a.m. Jan. 19 in the 810 block of Pendale, outside of Tequila’s Discotheque.
Earlier this week, Olivas was identified to KTSM by his family members.
Police were able to identify the pick-up truck involved in the crash as a dark model with a lift, oversized tires, chrome steps and possible light on the roof. Police are now saying that the truck was a black 2014 GMC Sierra belonging to Ayala, a news release said.
Ayala was booked into El Paso County Jail on an accident involving death charge. His bond is set at $30,000.
