December 6, 2021

CHANDLER, AZ – A man has been booked on suspicion of manslaughter after a crash that killed a woman and her unborn baby Sunday evening.

The crash happened around 2 a.m. Sunday, 12-5-21 at Arizona Avenue and Ocotillo Road in Chandler. According to court records, 33-year-old Roland Enos was driving a 2015 Jeep Wrangler south on Arizona Avenue and rear-ended a Chevy. One of the three passengers in that Chevy, Beatrice Gonzalez, was pregnant. She was sitting in the backseat behind the driver. Gonzalez and her baby died at the scene, according to court documents.

The driver suffered a broken rib, police said. Neither one of her other two passengers was injured.

Police say Enos was evaluated for possible injuries and potential impairment at a local hospital. Court documents list a blood alcohol concentration of 0.282 for Enos. The legal definition of impaired in Arizona is 0.08, and a BAC of 0.15 is considered Extreme DUI. Anything at 0.2 or higher carries a charge of Super Extreme DUI. No history of DUI was documented in his court paperwork for Enos.
Chandler police booked Enos on two counts each of manslaughter and endangerment, and one count of aggravated assault. The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office will decide how to proceed. A secured appearance bond was set at $100,000.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of the victims of this crash.
