Motor vehicle accidents: woman charged with manslaughter

Police in Arlington say they have arrested a Forth Worth woman on charges of intoxication manslaughter, following a fatal New Year's morning crash. Texas authorities say New Year's is a prime time for motor vehicle accidents, considering the tendency for people to over-imbibe alcohol around the holidays. This appears to be the case in this crash, as one driver is believed to have been drunk at the time. 

Preliminary reports suggest that two vehicles were occupying the exit ramp off of US 287 northbound when a vehicle driven by the 35-year-old Forth Worth woman failed to maintain its lane. Her car struck another passenger vehicle driven by a 46-year-old Arlington man, forcing his car into a concrete pillar. The man was pronounced dead at the scene by arriving medical authorities. 

The condition of the female driver is not known at this time, though police on the scene say they have reason to believe she was intoxicated when the crash occurred. They have not released a mug shot to the public, and they have asked for the support of the community in filling in details of the crash. Witnesses have been asked to contact detectives with any information they believe may be pertinent to the ongoing investigation. 

Motor vehicle accidents caused by drunk drivers are not just tragedies -- they are avoidable ones. This is why Texas has strong laws against intoxicated driving, and if the woman is found guilty of these charges, she could face prison time and the loss of her license. In addition, grieving family members are entitled under state law to file a wrongful death suit against her in civil court, separate from any criminal proceedings.
