Breitbart.com reported:

A Guatemalan who admitted he drank a small bottle of whiskey, 12 beers, and used cocaine three times during the 18 hours before he failed to stop for a red light, has been arrested in Phoenix for killing a six-year-old child.

Three children were in the bed of the truck and were thrown from the vehicle when he hit it at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. Two adults were in the truck with the children and a two-year-old child was sitting on the lap of an adult passenger in the front seat.

According to the report by CBS5 in Phoenix, six-year-old Tyrik Jenkins was killed when a Dodge pickup truck driven by 19-year-old German Valdemar Godinez-Godinez hit a Ford Ranger that was making a left turn. The boy was ejected from the bed of the truck and was taken to an area hospital where he later died.

The CBS affiliate reported that he is a citizen of Guatemala and considered a flight risk because he has family there. He was reported to have run a red light and allegedly told authorities that he did not see the red traffic light because the visor in his truck was down.

Godinez-Godinez was booked for driving under the influence (DUI) and faces one count of manslaughter and five counts of endangerment, according to the report. The judge set a $250,000 cash bond.
