The accident happened around 1 a.m. when an SUV headed eastbound on the 1604 access road was struck by another vehicle. The Jaws of Life were used to extricate two victims. 

Two men, 37-year-old Daniel Valenzuela Jr. and 69-year-old Daniel Valenzuela Sr., died at the scene. The third victim, 84-year-old Andrea Iglesias Uvalle, later died after being taken to a local hospital. 

Another passenger, a 41-year-old woman, was hospitalized with serious injuries. 

On Monday, the suspect was identified as 17-year-old Elijah James Montalvo. His charges include three counts of Intoxication Manslaughter with a $700,000 bond, records show.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

According to Texas Law, Intoxication Manslaughter involves an intoxicated driver that causes the death of someone else while they are behind the wheel. Because multiple people were killed and injured, and the driver was allegedly negligent while behind the wheel, it’s important to seek legal assistance who handles cases of negligence and intoxication.
