EL PASO, Texas (KTMS) — A man wanted for intoxication manslaughter from a fatal crash on July 4, 2022, has been arrested by the El Paso County Sheriff Office’s Warrants and Fugitive Apprehension Unit, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Valentin Soriano, 60, was arrested on Monday, Aug. 14 and booked into county jail, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, Soriano was involved in a single-vehicle crash along the 14500 block of Tangerine Avenue in Montana Vista back in 2022. A passenger in the vehicle died from his injuries.
