PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Police have identified the man killed early Monday morning when his car was T-boned by a suspected drunken driver at the intersection of 51st Avenue and Indian School Road.

Sgt. Trent Crump of the Phoenix Police Department said a man driving a pickup truck reportedly ran several red lights and struck the man's Ford Mustang on the driver's side at about midnight.

Ronald A. Lowe, 32, died at the scene. Crump said Lowe was a father who worked for a security company as a night patrol supervisor.

Crump said witnesses told police the truck, which was carrying four people, was being driven aggressively and at a high rate of speed while eastbound on Indian School Road.

He said alcohol is suspected as a factor in the crash, and that "various homicide or murder charges" are anticipated. He said the investigation is continuing.

The truck's driver was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries and the other three occupants had various degrees of injuries, also non-life-threatening.
