Houston, Texas (Feb. 20, 2023) – A man was killed early in the morning on Sat. Feb. 18 when a Toyota Tundra struck him while filing his vehicle with gas on the shoulder.

Wrongful Death

The driver of the Toyota Tundra has been identified as 21-year-old Marco Antonio Juarez. Juarez has been charged with intoxication manslaughter. Police arrested Juarez after determining on the scene he was impaired. 

According to HPD, a Chrysler 300, along with a second vehicle, were pulled over on the shoulder near the 9900 block of I-10. At approximately 3:40 a.m, the man was filling the Chrysler with gas when he was struck by Juarez.

The collision caused the man to be struck into the back of the second vehicle that was pulled over in front of the Chrysler. 

The man was pronounced dead at the scene by first responders.

A driver in the second vehicle was not injured in the incident.
