UPDATE: Raymond Reyes charged with manslaughter following wreck

Posted: Updated:

Lubbock man has been charged with manslaughter after a car wreck earlier this year. 

Police say 40-year-old Raymond Reyes crashed into a car being driven by Juan Trevino in June, and killed him, also injuring a passenger Daniel Trevino.

Court records show Reyes told investigators he'd taken a muscle relaxer earlier on June 29. On his way to a birthday party, Reyes told police he cut off another driver and that driver got aggressive, trying to speed and swerve around Reyes. According to records, Reyes said he turned his head to look toward the other vehicle, then struck Trevino's car.

Accident investigators estimate Reyes was doing about 76 miles per hour at the time of the crash, more than 30 miles over the speed limit, and was accelerating into the intersection.

Investigators report Reyes was taken to the hospital after the crash, but he left -- against doctors' suggestion -- before any blood samples could be taken to determine whether he was intoxicated. 

Both Juan Trevino and Daniel Trevino were hospitalized after the crash; Juan Trevino died from his injuries on June 30.

Reyes is being held on a $60,000 bond.
