HATCH, N.M. (AP) - Deputies in Don Ana County say they’ve arrested a 65-year-old Hatch man on charges he sold beer to teens who later were involved in a fatal crash that killed two people.

Alfredo Alaniz was charged with unlawful sale of alcoholic beverages, selling or giving alcohol to a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Deputies say in a news release that Alaniz was operating a makeshift store at his home and sold eight cans of beer to a 13-year-old boy for $10 Tuesday night.

The boy and two 16-year-old girls were later involved in a crash when their pickup veered into oncoming traffic. One of the girls and the driver of another car were killed.

The girl driving the pickup is jailed without bond and facing numerous charges.
