Man Charged With Intoxication Manslaughter for Duncanville Crash

A man faces two counts of intoxication manslaughter for his role in a deadly crash in Duncanville early Saturday morning, jail records show.

Police said they arrested Henry Fernando Diaz-Vargas after a crash that killed two women in Duncanville.

Duncanville police said a pickup truck and a sedan collided at the intersection of Clark Road and Clarkridge Drive.

The passenger of the sedan was pronounced dead at the scene, while the sedan's driver was taken to a hospital where she later died of her injuries, police said.

Diaz-Vargas was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life threatening, police said.

The women were identified later Saturday as Laquita Day, 42, and Lillian Ward, 30.

Diaz-Vargas is being held on $100,000 bond.
