An arrest has been made in the Bronx crash that killed a teenage girl from Rockland County and a man from Brooklyn.
The NYPD says it has charged Enrique Lopez for his involvement as the driver in the crash that resulted in the death of 15-year-old Sabrina Villa-Gomez-Gonzalez, from Nanuet, and 21-year-old Gilvante Roberson.
Police reports say the driver, aged 23, lost control of his vehicle and slammed into a parked oil tanker truck.
Lopez now faces multiple charges, including manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and endangering the welfare of a child.
Villa-Gomez-Gonzalez’s friend, 17-year-old Aaliyah Torres, was also in the car during the accident and remains in critical condition at St. Barnabas Hospital.
Funeral services for Villa-Gomez-Gonzalez were being held today at St. Joseph's Church in Spring Valley.
