Woman arrested for intoxication manslaughter

October 6, 2012

A local woman is free on bail after being arrested in connection with a 2009 traffic fatality that claimed the life of a former Big Spring resident.
Crystal Lee Calderon, 30, of Big Spring, was arrested on a charge of intoxication manslaughter, a charge that carries a potential sentence of between two and 10 years in state prison.
Calderon is alleged to have been intoxicated on July 12, 2009, when the vehicle she was driving was involved in an accident on Interstate 20 in Martin County.
Rosie Hernandez, a passenger in the vehicle Calderon was driving, was killed as a result of injuries received in the accident. Hernandez was a native and long-time resident of Big Spring who was living in Midland at the time of her death.
Calderon was arrested Thursday by a Department of Public Safety trooper in Big Spring and booked into the Howard County Detention Center, where she was later freed on $75,000 bond.
