Man indicted in fatal car crash

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A man accused of causing a drunken-driving crash that killed a 30-year-old woman and her infant child was indicted by a Bernalillo County grand jury Monday on three felony charges, officials said.

Carlos Rosales-Polanco, 41, was arrested July 26 after he allegedly lost control of a car and crashed into a utility pole at Coors and Gun Club SW, 2nd Judicial District Attorney Kari Brandenburg’s office said in a written statement.

Rosales-Polanco was indicted Monday on charges of homicide by vehicle, child abuse resulting in death, and child abuse not resulting in death, the statement said. He remained in the Bernalillo County jail Monday, with bail set at $100,000, cash only.

The accident killed Adriana Chavez-Miranda, 30, and her 1-year-old child, and injured the baby’s 10-year-old sibling. Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies allege Rosales-Polanco was intoxicated and speeding at the time of the crash, the statement said.
