On April 18, 2022, a woman driving a Chevrolet Tahoe had stopped behind a Kenworth truck in the eastbound lanes of the I-10 East Freeway near McCarty Street. Pablo Isai Frias, the alleged drunk driver, was operating a Peterbilt semi-truck and struck the back of the Chevrolet Tahoe, which caused the death of the woman driving the Tahoe.

The suspected drunk driver Pablo Isai Frias has been arrested and charged with a charge of Intoxication Manslaughter by Harris County District Attorney’s Office. Frias was arrested following the deadly crash. The police stated that Frias was evaluated at the scene and determined to be intoxicated and arrested at the scene.

Several field sobriety tests were conducted, and officers said they believe Frias was under the influence of some sort of depressant. Frias has been a truck driver for 12 years, is married, and is also the sole provider for five children. “When officers contacted suspect, he had red, glassy eyes, unsteady balance, and odor of alcoholic beverage coming from his person,” said the judge.
