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.

Campos was arrested and booked on suspicion of three counts of felony vehicular manslaughter and one count of driving under the influence and causing injury.

Campos’ bail was set at $750,000, according to police.
