LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Rodolfo "Rudy" Perez was arrested Thursday afternoon on charges of Intoxication Manslaughter with a Vehicle.

The Texas Department of Public Safety issued a warrant for Perez in the death of Steve Gossett. The crash occurred on Saturday Nov. 25 at Frankford (FM 25528) and Clovis Hwy (US 84).

From KCBD's Nov. 26 story: "Anton man killed in deadly accident in N. Lubbock."

Troopers say Steven Gossett, 42, of Anton, was headed west on Highway 84 in a yellow Dodge Neon, when he came to a stop at the stoplight, where the highway meets Frankford Avenue.

As he was waiting for the light to turn green, investigators say a Dodge SUV slammed into the back if him. That vehicle was driven by Rodolfo Perez, Jr., 43.

"Basically, the Dodge SUV never slowed down, he just ran into the back of the Dodge Neon. So, we don't know exactly what took place, or why. So we're still investigating the crash itself," Corporal John Gonzales, DPS said.

Gossett died at the scene.
