It just takes one drunk driver to ruin someone’s life. Drunk driving crashes are almost always more deadly than the normal ones. Drunkenness reduces reaction times and messes with perception, causing people to run red light like in this one.
A man was taken to the hospital in serious condition and a woman was killed when a drunk driver ran a red light. The accident happened around 2 AM on Aldine Mail Route. The drunk driver was found to be four times over the legal limit.
The driver already had two DWI charges, so this will be automatically upgraded to a murder charge from intoxication manslaughter. It’s quite likely that this drunk driver will be put away for a very long time. Murder charges are hard to prove, but Texas law makes it much easier in cases like these.
