New details in deadly crash, doctor arrested

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock police released more information the day after a Lubbock resident surgeon was arrested for intoxication manslaughter.  DPS arrested David Gonzalez-Gibler, 31, in Webb County on Tuesday.

Officials say Gonzalez-Gibler had a blood-alcohol content almost twice the legal limit at 0.14 in the early morning hours of August 14 when he flipped his car over the guardrail of Loop 289 near North Quaker Avenue.

Samantha Martinez, 19, was ejected and died at the scene. The front-seat passenger, Dawnyelle Rios, 18, was also ejected and sustained serious injuries.

On Wednesday, police said Rios tested positive for cocaine and had a blood alcohol level of 0.22.  Sergeant John Hayes says the teenage girls met Dr. Gonzalez-Gibler for the first time in the Depot Entertainment District just prior to the crash.  Hayes says text messages prove that he was with Rios in at least one bar or nightclub.   Police are not releasing the name of the business until more investigation has been done.

Hays did say that one or more businesses are now under investigation by TABC and there could be administrative fines or even criminal charges by a business that served to minors or the doctor if he was already intoxicated.

Toxicology results are not ready for Martinez, and because she died, those tests are handled differently than the tests done on Rios.
