Police say alcohol and driving at a high rate of speed played a role in a deadly collision near NW 10th and County Line Road early Saturday morning.

They arrested a Colorado man who tried to run from the crash site.

Investigators say Eric Bowman, 24, was behind the wheel of a pickup truck. They say he was driving under the influence and going more than 100 miles per hour when he collided with an SUV.
