Around 1,500 Texans die each year in drunk driving accidents, accounting for nearly half of all driving deaths. Unfortunately, in 2010, that trend appears to be holding true. Earlier in the spring, a drunk driver killed a 41-year-old Houston motorcyclist. The drunk driver turned left in front of the oncoming motorcyclist. Witnesses said that the motorcyclist had the green light. Authorities have charged the driver of the green Mazda pickup truck with intoxication manslaughter.
A few months earlier, another drunk driver killed a Time Warner cable worker as he worked on utility lines strung high above the ground. The 38-year-old worker was in the bucket above the ground when the drunk driver of a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo struck the back of the worker’s van. The accident ejected the worker from the elevated bucket and he fell to the ground. Emergency responders pronounced him dead at the scene. Authorities charged the Rodeo’s driver with intoxication manslaughter.
