Yet another DWI Death
At around 12:30 am on Wednesday, May 23rd, a 22-year-old Houston woman was headed eastbound in the 1300 block of Larraine St. in the Near Northside neighborhood when she lost control, crashed her pickup into a light pole and then struck a 60-year-old adult male pedestrian. The pickup’s driver was unhurt, but the man she struck was severely injured and rushed to an area hospital in critical condition. Unfortunately, he later died. According to HPD officers on the scene, the driver was found to be intoxicated at the scene, where she was arrested and has now been charged with felony vehicular intoxication homicide.
This carnage goes on and on and on. Another life lost, a young woman’s life ruined and two families devastated… all because she couldn’t refrain from drinking and then driving. If you or a loved one is ever injured by a drunk driver, please consider calling us. We are very good at holding such irresponsible people fully accountable for the terrible harm they cause.
