FONTANA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities in Fontana say a man has been charged in connection with a crash that killed three people last month.
Police allege that 24-year-old Carlos Campos of Fontana was behind the wheel of a Dodge Durango that rear-ended a vehicle on Oct. 21, carrying the three victims.
The victims, identified by police as Shawn Scott, 33, of Fontana; Helen Amaya, 33, of El Monte, and her 4-year-old daughter, died following the 8:30 p.m. accident at the intersection of Citrus and Foothill.
“Investigators conducted a thorough investigation into the cause of the accident and were able to obtain an arrest warrant for Campos from the district attorney’s office,” Fontana police said in a department statement.
“Toxicology tests revealed he was under the influence of methamphetamine at the time of the accident,” police added.
