Deadly Combination Apparently leads to Traffic Fatality

As many people were waking up on Sunday morning, a passenger was killed in a local traffic collision. It occurred around 7:00 o'clock in the morning in the 15,200 block of Woodforest Boulevard, on the east side of Houston near Channelview. The fatality may have resulted from a deadly combination of drinking and failing to wear a seatbelt.

The victim was Carlos Senea. He was riding in a vehicle driven by Wilfredo Lopez. It appears that Lopez was headed eastbound on Woodforest Boulevard when he swerved to his right. He hit a curb first, and then smashed into a tree.

Senea was not wearing a seatbelt. Investigators found him dead in the vehicle. Lopez, who was also not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle. Severely injured, he had to be rushed by ambulance to the hospital, and is listed in critical condition.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office is investigating the wreck. It is believed that alcohol may have been a cause of the crash.

Driving while intoxicated is dangerous. It imposes unnecessary risks upon the driver himself, his passengers (as here), and other motorists. It is essential to roadway safety that Houstonians never drive drunk, and that we exhibit zero tolerance for those who do. Only when all members of our community have realized that driving while intoxicated is unacceptable, and take responsible steps to avoid it, will we see a decline in such needless and preventable loss of life.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident by a drunk driver, contact the attorneys at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend by calling 713-396-3964 or 1-800-594-4884.
