A man who has been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol has been charged in connection with a crash in Galveston on Saturday afternoon that took the life of a 72-year-old Humble man and seriously injured his wife.
According to authorities, at approximately 2:00 PM on Saturday, July 26th, Adrian Paul Mills made a sudden U-turn on Seawall, causing him to ram his Q50 SUV into the side of a Toyota Sienna minivan being driven by the victim, Ashley Boyd.
Ashley and Alice Boyd were traveling to a family reunion at the time of the crash. Ashley Boyd was declared dead at the scene of the accident while his wife, Alice, is still hospitalized at University of Texas Medical Branch.
