On Sunday APD arrested 38-year-old Edgar Rangel on an intoxicated manslaughter warrant after he was released from a local hospital where he was being treated for injuries he received in a truck v. train collision.
Rangel's charges stem from the August 10, 2013 truck v. train wreck where a 4-year-old boy was killed.
According to APD, Rangel was driving a Dodge 1500 when it was struck by two separate trains in the 600 block of north Eastern. A 4-year-old male was the only passenger and the truck was towing a horse trailer with a single horse inside.
APD said the boy was ejected from the vehicle after it was struck by the train. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene due to injuries he received in the collision.
Alcohol was a factor in the crash, according to APD.
Rangel was arrested for intoxicated manslaughter and was booked into Potter County Correction Center.
