Man Arrested For Sioux Falls Accident Being Held On Bond

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The Sioux Falls man accused of driving drunk, crashing and killing a mother of six is being held jail on $500,000 bond.

Twenty-year-old Oscar Madrigal is charged with vehicular homicide, second offense driving while intoxicated, no driver’s license, failure to obey a traffic control device and an outstanding warrant.

Sioux Falls police say he ran a flashing red light early New Year’s Day in a Jeep and collided with a minivan.

Thirty-eight-year-old Tanya Sanchez of Sioux Falls was a passenger in the other vehicle and was killed.

It’s not clear if he has an attorney.
