GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Marshall County Sheriff's Department arrested a man in connection with the fatal rollover wreck near Guntersville that killed four people.

Investigators said they could not elaborate due to the ongoing investigation, but 20-year-old Adrian Michael Renteria was arrested Thursday night on charges of making a false report and obstructing governmental operations.

District Attorney Steve Marshall said the charges stem from statement Renteria made to law enforcement at the time of the wreck, which have since been determined to be false.

The wreck happened on the section of Highway 431 north of Guntersville just before 3 p.m. Sunday. A pickup truck carrying nine passengers, including several children, flipped on the side of the highway. Two people in another car involved in the wreck were not injured.

The driver of the truck, 19-year-old Jonryan Moore Lawson, of Albertville, was killed in the crash. A passenger in the bed of the truck, 21-year-old Blake Anthony Keener from Albertville, was also killed. Rita Maegan Elizabeth Cordell, 13, of Boaz, was a passenger in the cab of the truck and died of her injuries at the scene. Ruben Parker Pacheco, 18 of Albertville, was a passenger in the bed of the pickup and died from his injuries.
