PHOENIX -

Police identified 20-year-old Isaac Richard Quesada as the driver who allegedly dragged and killed a man in a case of road rage on Saturday.

Officers say it all started as a fender-bender near 19th Avenue and Northern when the 66-year-old driver of a Scion reached into the other car involved in the crash, a white Nissan Altima.  The driver, identified as Quesada, took off from the scene, dragging the man down the road, according to authorities.

Jesus Jimenez died in a hospital Saturday evening.

Poliec say Quesada didn't stop until he hit another car, then fled the scene.

The Altima drove into oncoming traffic and smashed into an oncoming Nissan Maxima with a child inside. The driver tried to flee the scene again after that crash.  Luckily, bystanders were able to get a hold of Quesada before he took off.

"As the driver was attempting to flee the scene, he was taken into custody by witnesses," said Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson.  "They detained him for the officers."

"So he got out of the car..other gentleman laying on the ground..he tried to get away..I jumped on him and held him until the police got here," said Gary Taylor.

The passengers in the Maxima suffered minor injuries.

Court paperwork shows that Quesada had a blood alcohol level of .237 -- that's nearly three times the legal limit. He also had marijuana and cocaine in his system.

Quesada was booked into jail and faces numerous charges, including manslaughter, aggravated assault and endangerment.
