Chief Assistant District Attorney Teresa Heinz said that Zelvin Pavon-Gomez, originally from Honduras, is in the United States illegally, according to WKRG-TV.

Heinz stated that Gomez’s blood alcohol level was .22—nearly three times the legal limit—when it was tested three hours after the accident.

WKRG reported that at the time of the crash, the vehicle Gomez was driving with his girlfriend’s daughter was traveling at 68 mph in a 45 mph zone.

The vehicle left the road, crashed into a fence, and rolled over.

Initially, Gomez was charged with driving under the influence and first-degree assault.

WKRG reported that the crash occurred after an argument during which the mother and the dog got out of the vehicle.

According to WALA-TV, the 6-year-old girl was critically injured in the accident and later passed away.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency stated that the girl was not in a child safety seat or other restraint at the time of the crash and was ejected from the 2003 GMC Yukon upon impact.

After her death, manslaughter was added to the charges facing Gomez.

Gomez was also injured in the accident. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment before being put in the Baldwin County Jail.
