A Lake Worth man is charged in a fatal crash that killed a Florida State University student.

Authorities say 21-year-old Mauricio Gomez was arrested Tuesday on charges of driving under the influence manslaughter.

Gomez was driving on Interstate 95 last year when he struck and killed a 21-year-old Matthew Beard on December 21. Beard later died on December 29.

Gomez was found to be driving under the influence with a blood alcohol level of .13.
