The car’s driver and another passenger were taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. Their conditions were not available Monday.
Forest Hill police did not report why Gomez was in Tarrant County.
The department’s criminal investigation division “is conducting background follow-up on all the ‘before’ activities of all people involved,” police Capt. J.W. Cozby said Monday in an email.
Salinas-Gomez was in the Forest Hill Jail on Monday with bail set at $250,000 in each intoxication manslaughter case and $125,000 in each intoxication assault case.
