Dallas police have charged a 25-year-old man for causing an accident that killed two people and injured three others in west Oak Cliff.

Investigators believe Aaron Henry of Grand Prairie was drunk when his Hyundai Santa Fe rear-ended a GMC Terrain carrying five people just before midnight on Sunday.

According to a police report, the GMC was stopped at a red light on Davis Street at Gilpin Avenue. The report says Henry's Hyundai smashed into the rear of the vehicle, spinning it across the road.

Investigating officers smelled alcohol on Henry's breath, according to the report, and he allegedly stated he had two beers earlier in the day with a friend.
