A third person involved in a horrific crash Sunday night at Louisiana and Central has died.

Police say Jennifer Perez, 19, succumbed to her injuries and passed away in the hospital Monday afternoon.

Two other people died in the crash, which happened Sunday at Central and Louisiana at about 8 p.m. when a white Lincoln sedan through the intersection of Central and Louisiana, crossed the median and entered oncoming lanes of Louisiana.

The car then ran up onto the sidewalk before striking the trees and a fixed object.

The vehicle was badly mangled, requiring AFD personnel to extract the occupants.

Jorge Cano, 20, was ejected and died at the scene, and Jessica Hernandez, 18, died at the hospital.

Another passenger, Jayla Cano, 1, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Police told KOB that her car seat may have saved her life.

Police say the driver, Andres Quintana, 21, is in critical condition at UNM Hospital.

Investigators say that if Quintana survives, he could face charges including vehicular homicide and reckless driving.
