According to the Ada County Sheriff’s Office, Montoya was driving a semi-truck when he ran a red light while speeding at an intersection. That is when eyewitnesses said Montoya hit Holcomb, who was driving his pickup truck.

The impact of the crash was so hard that Holcomb was thrown from his pickup truck. Montoya’s semi-truck disconnected and hit a number of concrete barriers before it stopped moving, the sheriff’s office said.

Holcomb was quickly aided by paramedics and rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. Meanwhile, when sheriff deputies arrived and questioned Montoya, they said he smelled of alcohol before he admitted to drinking “a few beers earlier.”

Afterward, the deputies said Montoya failed a field sobriety test and registered a .22 blood alcohol content level, which is more than the legal limit of .04 for commercial drivers and over the legal limit of .08 for standard Idaho drivers.

Montoya was arrested and booked into the Ada County Jail, where he is being held on a $1 million bail.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency confirmed to Breitbart News that they have placed a detainer on Montoya “based on probable cause” that he is an illegal alien. An ICE detainer requests that local law enforcement hold an illegal alien in their custody until ICE agents are able to take over custody.
