LAS CRUCES — A Texas man is being held without bond as he awaits trial in a vehicle homicide case in New Mexico, authorities said Wednesday.

Dona Ana County prosecutors said Eric Solis, 29, is charged with one count of homicide by vehicle, five counts of great bodily injury by vehicle, one count of aggravated fleeing of a law enforcement officer and driving on a suspended license.

It was unclear Wednesday if Solis has a lawyer for his case.

Solis, of Odessa, is accused of running a red light in New Mexico’s Sunland Park on May 9 and causing a crash that killed an El Paso woman and injured several of her children.

Authorities said 32-year-old Danielle Perez died at the scene of the collision that involved four vehicles.

New Mexico State Police said Solis was driving a pickup truck at more than 95 mph as he tried to evade law enforcement.
