A 26-year-old man from Honduras is in custody after D’Iberville police say he crashed his vehicle at 2:45 a.m. Sunday, seriously injuring his passenger.

Lt. Jason King said Miguel Alberto Reyes fled the crash, but was later arrested on an aggravated driving under the influence charge.

King said Reyes’ passenger was severely injured. The passenger was taken to Merit Health ER and later to the University of South Alabama Hospital in Mobile. As of Monday, the passenger was listed as in serious but stable condition, Chief Wayne Payne said.

He said the crash happened on the frontage road to Interstate 10 westbound. Only Reyes’ vehicle was involved in the crash. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Reyes was held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center in lieu of a $250,000 bond set by Harrison County Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.

According to the jail docket, Reyes also has a hold on him from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
