LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — A Texas man is being held without bond as he awaits trial in a vehicle homicide case in New Mexico, authorities said Wednesday.

Dona Ana County prosecutors said 29-year-old Eric Solis is charged with one count of homicide by vehicle, five counts of great bodily injury by vehicle, one count of aggravated fleeing of a law enforcement officer and driving on a suspended license.

It was unclear Wednesday if Solis has a lawyer for his case.

Solis, of Odessa, is accused of running a red light in New Mexico’s Sunland Park on May 9 and causing a crash that killed an El Paso woman and injured several of her children.

Authorities said 32-year-old Danielle Perez died at the scene of the collision that involved four vehicles.

New Mexico State Police said Solis was driving a pickup truck at more than 95 mph as he tried to evade law enforcement.
