Via reported:

An unlicensed driver who was allegedly trying to “beat the light” when he crashed into another vehicle, killing two BYU students, was booked into the Utah County Jail on Wednesday.

Ceasar Castellon-Flores, 20, of Orem, was arrested for investigation of two counts of manslaughter, negligent collision, reckless driving, speeding and two counts of not obtaining a license.

Friday night, a crash at the intersection of 400 S. State in Orem killed Hailee York, 21, of Lehi, and Ashlyn Hanzon, 21, of Pearland, Texas. The women were in a Chevy Malibu making a left turn onto State Street when a Jeep Cherokee allegedly tried to speed through the intersection after it turned yellow, according to a police booking affidavit…

…Police noted that the driver of the Jeep, Castellon-Flores, actually passed other cars in front of him that were in the process of slowing and stopping for the traffic signal. Investigators determined that Castellon-Flores was traveling 68 mph in a 40 mph zone, and then increased his speed to 73 mph once the light turned yellow, according to the affidavit. When he realized he was about to hit another car, the Jeep was only able to reduce its speed to 67 mph before the collision, the affidavit states.

Castellon-Flores is an undocumented citizen, according to the affidavit, and appeared to officers to be “making an attempt to flee or elude police” when they came to his house after the investigation to look for him.
