Driver Charged in Drunk Driving Car Accident

Comments Off

Two people were killed earlier this month when a drunk driver flew over a seawall in deadly car accident. The driver has been charged with DWI and failing to stop and give aid to accident victims.

Oscar Podencceo, 20, who told police he is from Mexico and not a legal U.S. citizen, remained in a University of Texas Medical Branch hospital under observation Monday afternoon. Police allege he was driving the car when it went off the Seawall and that they caught him fleeing on foot a few blocks away from the accident, Capt. Edward Benavidez said.

The most recent information on the crash said that authorities had yet to release the victims’ names.
