Driving while intoxicated can generally result in a number of penalties in the State of Texas. A person who commits this offense can often be served with fines, a license suspension, community service, incarceration and/or a higher insurance payment. While these consequences should be enough to keep anyone from driving under the influence, some people continue to break the law while putting others at serious risk.
An El Paso woman was arrested and charged with intoxicated manslaughter after her involvement in an accident that claimed the life of a 21-year-old man. The crash occurred at the 9100 block of Dyer at around 2:30 a.m.
According to reports, the woman was speeding as the Fort Bliss man was leaving a fast food restaurant. The woman swerved into the man’s lane and hit him from behind. His vehicle was pushed into a curb and eventually stopped when it crashed into a bench. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman was taken to University Medical Center and was later booked at the El Paso County Jail with intoxicated manslaughter charges.
