Every six hours, a bicyclist is struck and fatally injured by a motor vehicle driver. This is primarily due to a vehicle running a red light, failing to yield, or simply because the driver didn’t see the bicyclist. For the case above, Hector Saldarriaga was fatally killed by a suspected drunk driver.
According to Texas Law, Intoxication Manslaughter involves an intoxicated driver that causes the death of someone else while they are behind the wheel. Because a person was killed, and the driver, Reyes, is seen to be negligent while behind the wheel, it’s important to seek legal assistance who handles cases of negligence and Intoxication Manslaughter.
It’s important to contact legal assistance to get the compensation you deserve for an untimely, and undeserved, accident.
