PHOENIX – A man suspected of driving while extremely drunk was arrested after a pregnant woman and her unborn child were killed in a wreck over the weekend in Chandler, authorities said Wednesday.
Ronald Enos, 33, was driving a Jeep that rear-ended a Chevrolet at a high speed near Arizona Avenue and Ocotillo Road around 2:15 a.m. Sunday, the Chandler Police Department said in a press release.
Both vehicles had been traveling southbound on Arizona Avenue.
A 22-year-old pregnant passenger in the Chevrolet was pronounced dead at the scene and the unborn child was lost, police said. The woman’s name was not released.
Three other occupants in the Chevrolet sustained minor injuries.
Enos was treated at a hospital for minor injuries. His blood-alcohol level was measured at 0.245, more than three times Arizona’s legal limit, police said.
Enos was booked into Maricopa County Jail on Monday on two counts each of manslaughter and endangerment and one count of aggravated assault, all felonies.
The investigation is ongoing.
