Tucson, AZ – UPDATE: Guadalupe Barrios Arrested in Fatal Crash at Golf Links Rd

Tucson, AZ (October 9, 2019) – Officers from the Tucson Police Department arrested a man on Monday after he allegedly fled the scene of a fatal crash late last month.

Guadalupe Barrios, 32, is facing charges of leaving the scene of an accident causing death, according to a Tuesday news release from the Tucson Police Department. Police said additional charges may be added at a later time.

Around 4:40 a.m. on September 22nd, officers found Barrios’ passenger Davis Ochoa-Borquez, 29, dead near half of a 2000 Nissan Sentra at South Swan Road and East Golf Links Road. Officers discovered that the front half of the car went through a chain-link fence near the U.S. Border Patrol Station. Detectives determined that three people were in the Nissan Sentra, which was speeding southbound on Swan Road when Barrios allegedly crashed into a utility pole. The accident sheared the vehicle in half.

Police say that excessive speed was a major factor in the fatal crash. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Davis Ochoa-Borquez at this time.
