HOOD RIVER, Ore. (AP) - A Hood River man has been arrested in a rollover crash that killed two passengers early Tuesday in the Columbia River Gorge, police said.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Noel Hernandez was driving east on Interstate 84 between Hood River and Mosier when his vehicle left the highway and rolled multiple times, according to the Oregon State Police said, citing an early investigation.

Rosalia Gonzalez-Ortiz, 23, of Hood River, and a boy who was also in the car suffered fatal injuries, police said. The boy has not been publicly identified.

Hernandez was taken to a hospital and later booked into jail on suspicion of intoxicated driving and manslaughter. It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer to comment on his behalf.
