Family of Texas A&M Student Killed by Drunk Driver Awarded $69 Million

On September 15, 2019, Texas A&M student Carly Beatty was walking down Texas Avenue in College Station with several of her friends. At that time, a man named Pedro Puga hit Beatty with his vehicle and fled the scene. Puga was later apprehended.

At the time of the Incident, Puga had a blood alcohol content level of .032. Puga also tested positive for THC, cocaine metabolites, and etizolam.
