Suspect Involved in Fatal Crash Arrested by Amarillo Police

The Amarillo Police have arrested a suspect who was involved in a fatal crash that led to the death of one person. The suspect has been apprehended in connection with a crash that happened on Tuesday, May 26. He has been identified by the authorities as Paul Vincent Chavez, 30.

According to the details shared by the police, the accident took place on the Parker Street. Chavez was traveling southbound on the road when he ran a red light. He had a previous felony assault warrant out for him and the local law enforcement personnel were already looking for him.

As Chavez ran the red light, his vehicle collided with another car. The sheer impact of the collision caused the second vehicle to then crash into a home. The vehicle Chavez was driving also flipped on its side. The driver of the other vehicle was identified as George Kenneth Ulibarri, 58, of Amarillo.

Ulibarri sustained critical injuries in the collision. As first responders and law enforcement arrived on the scene of the crash, efforts to revive him failed. He was pronounced dead at the spot.

Chavez also sustained some injuries in the collision. However, he fled the scene of the crash and hid in a shed nearby. The DPS Criminal Investigation Agents pursued him and were able to locate him. He was then apprehended and transported to a local hospital for his injuries. His injuries are reported as non-life-threatening.

Given his negligence in running the red light that caused the accident, he faces multiple charges. Some of these charges, such as felony assault, stem from a previous warrant. New charges that have been brought up against him include accident causing death and murder. Both are gravely serious charges and if convicted, Chavez may face a long time in the prison.
