A suspected drunken driver got into a deadly crash in Southeast Oak Cliff while trying to get away from the scene of a minor accident, according to police. 

Police say 28-year-old Jacob Arredondo ran a red light at Simpson Stuart and Bonnie View and hit a driver who was making a turn.

The driver, 18-year-old Cameron Summer-Horton, was taken to a hospital where he later died.

Arredondo was arrested and charged with intoxication manslaughter.

Police at the scene told FOX 4 Arrendondo was fleeing after a minor crash in the area.

In reaction to the news, Dallas City Councilmember Cara Mendelsohn posted on social media that Dallas police need more tools for driver sobriety checks.
