EL PASO, Texas - 87-year-old Ruriko Denison has died, according to El Paso police, after she was critically injured when an SUV crashed into her home in Northeast El Paso the day before Christmas Eve.
Police arrested 41-year-old Margaret Cantu.
According to court documents obtained by the ABC-7 I-team, Cantu has four previous DWI convictions.
She also allegedly handed a witness a Budlight specialty beer and asked the witness to get rid of it, that witness refused.
A friend of the family tells ABC-7 that Denison died during a surgery for injuries she suffered after the crash.

It is unclear if the charges against Cantu will be upgraded.
