CHANDLER, Ariz. — A pregnant woman and her unborn child were killed, and another person was injured in a crash involving a drunk driver in Chandler early Sunday morning, according to court paperwork.

Just before 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, 33-year-old Roland Enos was driving his vehicle southbound on Arizona Avenue when he crashed into the back of another vehicle, court documents state.

A pregnant woman inside the other vehicle, Beatrice Gonzalez, was injured in the crash and was pronounced dead by medical crews on the scene, according to court paperwork. The unborn child did not survive.

The driver, along with two other passengers, were transported to nearby hospitals.

Enos, who was taken to a hospital and was not injured in the crash, had a blood-alcohol content (BAC) level of .282, which is more than three times the legal limit.

Following his release from the hospital, Enos was taken into custody and charged with two counts of manslaughter, one count of aggravated assault, and two counts of endangerment.
