An illegal alien is suspected of killing another motorist while driving drunk and then fleeing the scene in New Mexico this week, according to reports.

The fatal wreck unfolded just after 12 a.m. on Monday in Albuquerque.

The suspect barreled through a red light in his pickup truck at a high rate of speed, crashing into two vehicles in the intersection, police stated in a criminal complaint.

Witnesses say the suspect then exited his truck and was running away before Good Samaritans chased him down and restrained him until officers arrived.

Jesus Sandoval-Martinez, 21, was arrested by the Albuquerque Police Department.

Officers said Sandoval-Martinez was slurring his words and multiple open containers of alcohol were found in his vehicle.

Two people in a Tesla involved in the crash were rushed to a local hospital in critical condition.

Tiger Gutierrez, 22, succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased.

A third driver reportedly suffered minor injuries.

Sandoval-Martinez was charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, reckless driving, and leaving the scene of an accident.

He is being held at Bernalillo County jail and is expected to appear at a pretrial detention hearing on Friday.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) later revealed that Sandoval-Martinez is an illegal alien from Mexico.

“Sandoval-Martinez is a Mexican national with no Social Security number, and he didn’t have a valid driver’s license,” Bill Melugin reported on Wednesday, citing a DHS source.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has lodged a detainer against Sandoval-Martinez.
