This weekend in Houston lots of festivities were enjoyed for the Fourth of July holiday celebration, but bad things did happen. The night before Saturday, July 4, 2015, Friday night, a woman lost her life on the streets of Northeast Houston due to a head on collision with an intoxicated motorists.
If you didn’t know, in Harris County, Texas DWI is a serious matter that is claimed the lives of thousands, and has resulted in the imprisonment of a large number of irresponsible DWI offending adults.
HOUSTON – Houston police say a person has been charged in the crash that killed a woman late Friday on Laura Koppe at Arkansas Street.
The head-on incident happened around 11 p.m., according to the Houston Police Department.
The suspect, Maria Guadalupe Udave, 34, is charged with intoxication manslaughter in the 183rd State District Court. The identity of the deceased female victim, 58, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
Police say Udave was driving a gray Nissan Armada SUV westbound on Laura Koppe while the victim was driving a gray Toyota Camry eastbound on Laura Koppe. Udave’s SUV swerved into the eastbound lanes, crashing head-on into the Camry. The victim was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
I hope this lady gets life in prison for her crime. The lady who lost her life didn’t see it coming, and was snuffed out by a Hispanic, hopefully not one that is here is legally. This is a serious DWI intoxication – manslaughter charge which is a felony offense in Houston. Houston DWI lawyer Tad A. Nelson of the Law Offices of Tad Nelson and Associates is probably one of the best lawyers to talk with if this lady is to have any chance of avoiding a prison sentence of 20 years to life – TDCJ.
The Texas criminal justice departments prison facilities are filled to the rim with criminals who are guilty of nothing more than driving after they have become intoxicated on alcoholic beverages. Understandably, it’s easy to live your life, get drunk, and take to the road speaking that things will be fine. This is likely an everyday occurrence. However, there are the exceptions when shit goes wrong and people.
