The crash occurred at Ming Avenue and New Stine Road.

Court documents indicate Rubio’s car was traveling south on New Stine Road at 118 miles an hour when he ran a red light and crashed into Almonidovar's car, killing her on impact. 

Rubio's blood alcohol level was almost twice the legal limit of .08. Almonidovar also was found to have a blood alcohol level above the limit.

Officers say Rubio ran from the scene into a nearby neighborhood where police later found him and arrested him.
