LEONARDTOWN, Md. (June 30 , 2008)—Today Eddi G. Barrientos Ibanez, age 21 of Lexington Park, was charged with two counts of negligent homicide by auto while intoxicated for the deaths of Louis Felipe Moya Martinez, age 34 of Waldorf, and Christina Garcia Chavez, age 22 of Lexington Park. The two were killed on Saturday when a pickup truck, driven by Ibanez, left the road and hit a tree on Bay Forest Road in Lexington Park. Two others were injured.

Police say that on Saturday around 7:10 p.m., a 1998 Ford F150 pickup operated by Ibanez was traveling west on Bay Forest Road at a high rate of speed. The vehicle failed to negotiate a left hand turn and exited the west side of the roadway sliding sideways into a large tree. The vehicle continued on, striking another tree head-on and eventually coming to rest in the roadway.

Zaydia Garcia Chavel, age 18 of Waldorf, and Hose Esuin Leon Guerra, age 28 of Waldorf, were flown to Prince George's Shock Trauma and are listed in stable condition.

Ibanez was flown to Prince George's Hospital for observation of minor injuries before being taken in custody by sheriff's deputies.

Local police are currently working to determine if Ibanez is in the United States illegally. According to Deputy Cindy Allen, Public Information Officer for the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office, Ibanez was fingerprinted after his arrest and those fingerprints have been transmitted to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in order to make a determination as to his citizenship status.

Ibanez is currently being held in the St. Mary's County Detention Center pending an appearance before a District Court Commissioner.
