Harris County, TX (10/25/2020) – Three passengers were killed and another person was injured in a fatal drunk driving incident.
The incident happened when a Honda Accord traveling “at a high rate of speed” crashed into a black pickup truck that was making a left turn into a business. The collision forced the pickup truck driver to be ejected from the vehicle.
The driver of the Honda, 47-year-old Camilo Morejon, was charged with three counts of intoxicated manslaughter. Police say he was intoxicated at the tie of the crash and “open alcoholic beverage containers” were found inside the Accord.
Three passengers in the Accord were killed as a result of the collision. They were identified as Leosveyks Gonzalez, 35; Ricardo Rodriguez Tamayo, 40; and Massel Rodriguez Tamayo, 32.
The truck driver, 45-year-old Pedro Hernandez-Martinez, is hospitalized in very serious condition.
Morejon was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
