PHOENIX (AP) — A 22-year-old Glendale woman has been arrested in a wrong-way crash on a Phoenix-area freeway that caused the death of a Goodyear woman.

Delilah Castillo was released from a rehabilitation facility and arrested Wednesday on suspicion of second-degree, endangerment and criminal damage in the July 11 crash that killed 20-year-old Laiquan Lemon.

The Department of Public Safety said Castillo was driving northbound in southbound lanes of Loop 101 near Union Hills Drive when her car collided with Lemon’s car.

A prosecutor said during Castillo’s court appearance that she had been drinking beer cocktails the night of the wreck and had a blood-alcohol level of .171 percent, over twice Arizona’s legal limit.

Castillo remained jail and court records didn’t indicate whether she has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
