Impairment May Have Been a Factor in Accident that Left One Dead

Mesa police believe impairment might have been a factor in a Sunday afternoon collision that killed 35-year-old Jared Carter.

The Mesa Fire Department responded to a crash near Alma School and Broadway roads about 1:30 p.m. Sunday and removed five people from the two vehicles. Carter, who was sitting in the backseat of the car that was hit, died at the scene.

Police identified Matthew Crisp, 27, as the driver who caused the accident. Crisp was hospitalized and remained in intensive care Monday afternoon. Authorities are waiting on test results to determine if he was impaired.

Crisp is facing charges of manslaughter and four counts of aggravated assault. Police are still investigating.
