LUBBOCK, Texas — A Texas man wanted on a manslaughter charge in connection with a fatal crash earlier this year has been captured in Alaska, police announced today.
Earlier this month, on July 7, 2020, an arrest warrant was issued for Raymundo Miguel Gamboa on a charge for manslaughter in connection with a fatal crash investigation in Lubbock, Texas.
According to police, on January 1, 2020, around 2:30 p.m., Gamboa was driving a Ford Fusion southbound on Slide Road and collided with an eastbound Ford Edge at the intersection of Marsha Sharp Freeway frontage road. After the initial collision, the Ford Fusion struck a Ford Explorer.
A front passenger in Gamboa's vehicle, identified by police as 28-year-old Jose Fraire, suffered serious injuries, was transported to University Medical Center, and was pronounced deceased. Two other moderate injuries were reported in the crash.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Gamboa failed to stop at a red light and was intoxicated at the time of the crash.
On July 15, 2020, the Lubbock Police Department and the U.S. Marshal's Service was notified that Gamboa had been found in Anchorage, Alaska. He had been arrested and was being held on local charges, in addition to the manslaughter warrant.
