Police in Texas have charged a 22-year-old man in connection to a fatal crash that resulted in the death of three teens,  and two others suffering serious injury.

Carlos Thompson, of Odessa, has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of purchase of alcohol for a minor. 

He turned himself in to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center, the Odessa Police Department shared in a release

Three teens, identified as 18-year-old Evan Hill of Odessa, 19-year-old Andrew Nading and 19-year-old Kaenan Garms of Odessa, died in the fatal crash on September 19, at 52nd Street and Clover in North Odessa.

Nading had been driving a GMC Terrain that struck a F-150 being driven by Garms, who had run a stop sign just moments prior. Nading was taken to a local hospital but died once there.

Benjamin Luna, the 19-year-old front seat passenger of the gray GMC Terrain, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. D’Morriyon Breaux, 18 and the front seat passenger in the F-150, is also in the hospital.
