A man named Benjamin Guiang has been apprehended on charges of driving under the influence of drugs and allegedly causing a fatal accident that killed his two passengers in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The accident took place on the southbound Unser route around 1 a.m. on Friday, according to the Albuquerque police. The two passengers were thrown out of the vehicle and pronounced dead at the site of the accident. Guiang was extricated from the vehicle and quickly taken to the UNM Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries to the neck and back.
