More information has been released about the wrong-way freeway crash that killed one person and sent two to the hospital. The Houston Chronicle has the story of what has happened since.
The person responsible for the crash has been formally charged with intoxication manslaughter. The registered BAC of the man was .284, which is well over the legal limit. Beer cans were found in his pickup at the time of the crash. If convicted, the man faces 20 years in prison.
The wife of the man who died is still in a coma from the crash. The man who died was a coach at Heights High School. They were on the Sam Houston Tollway around 1:30 AM when the drunk driver came down the road against traffic and hit the couple’s vehicle. Their vehicle caught fire, which was how police found the scene.
We hope that the family is able to get compensation to cover the expenses of this incident. No amount of money can heal the hurt, but it can cover the final bills. Hopefully their insurance company gives them a fair settlement.
