CLOVIS, NM – A young man was arrested after police said he fled from a crash in Clovis that left a woman injured on Tuesday morning.

According to Eastern New Mexico News, the incident began when police tried to conduct a traffic stop on 19-year-old Vincente Torres-Gurrola on Lea Street due to outstanding warrants against him.

A 61-year-old woman who was involved in the car crash was transported to Plains Regional Medical Center for treatment of chest and head pain.
