ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - In a story Nov. 9 about a North Texas crash, The Associated Press, relying on information from Arlington police, reported erroneously that three people died. Two people died in the crash. The suspected drunken driver is now being held on only two counts of intoxication manslaughter instead of three.

A corrected version of the story is below:

2 die in Arlington suspected drunken-driving crash

2 women die in Arlington crash involving suspected drunken driver

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Two people have been killed in a North Texas crash involving a suspected drunken driver.

Police say 38-year-old Eldrick Westbrook ran a red light early Sunday in Arlington before hitting another vehicle with four people inside. The vehicle spun into a traffic light pole. One person was killed at the scene and a second person died at a local hospital. The driver remains hospitalized in intensive care while the fourth occupant suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Spokeswoman Tiara Richard says the two people who died were women ages 19 and 26.

Westbrook was being held at Arlington city jail on two counts of intoxication manslaughter and one count of intoxication assault. His bail has not been set. It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.
