Husband released from jail following Mesa crash that killed wife, police say

A man was accused of manslaughter in connection to a crash in Mesa that left his wife dead, but he's since been released from jail and isn't being charged after all.

According to Mesa Police, the crash happened just after 3 p.m. on July 31 when a Nissan Sentra that was speeding crashed into a metal pole at an intersection north of Gilbert Road and University Drive

The passenger in the car, 35-year-old Kasey Galvan, was pronounced dead at the scene.

"Mesa Police Officers had Galvan complete Field Sobriety Tests," police said at the time of the crash. "Impairment was observed and Galvan was taken into custody."

Mario Galvan was booked into jail on a $250,000 bond, but he's since been released from jail and the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office declined prosecution at this time.

"The Mesa Police Department is still awaiting official laboratory results for Galvan’s blood alcohol content and other video footage from an outside source. Once those items of evidence are received and reviewed the determination to refile criminal charges will be made at that time. This investigation is ongoing," says Mesa Police Sgt. Charles Trapani.

The Maricopa County Attorney's Office released a statement saying, "The evidence in this case corroborates the defendant’s story as to why and how the crash occurred and therefore our office has declined to file criminal charges in this matter."
