PHOENIX -- A Phoenix man arrested after a fatal freeway rollover allegedly had a blood-alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit for Arizona drivers.

Court documents released Friday show 34-year-old Edwin Hurt's level was .317 percent when he rolled a luxury car Sunday night on Interstate 10 in Tolleson. Arizona's legal limit for operating a vehicle is .08 percent.

The crash killed one passenger and seriously injured another who had an arm amputated.

Authorities say they found Xanax pills in the Jaguar's center console although Hunt doesn't have prescription for the drug.

Hurt was arraigned Friday on charges of manslaughter, extreme DUI, endangerment and possession of a dangerous drug.

His bond was set at $150,000.

Records show Hurt doesn't have an attorney yet. His next scheduled court date is Oct. 24.
