At the intersection of 7400 block of FM 1960 and West Lake Houston Parkway, a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer ran a red light crashing into a Corvette. The Trailblazer was driven by Craig Welch, 23 years old, who was intoxicated at the time. According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Walsh ignored the red light driving through the intersection and broadsided the Corvette which had previously stopped for a red light before continuing southbound. Omar Jaramillo, who was driving the Corvette, was killed when the Trailblazer struck the driver’s side of the Corvette and Jaramillo’s mother, Irene Jaramillo was in the passenger’s seat, was badly injured. She was transported to a local hospital where she received treatment for “survivable” injuries. Walsh was arrested at the scene and has been charged with intoxicated manslaughter. He is being held on $30,000 bail.
