EDINBURG — A man involved in a September 5 fatal crash is being held on a $1.5 million bond following his arraignment.
Juan Pablo Torres, 27, was charged with intoxication manslaughter, intoxication assault, and unlawful carrying of a weapon, according to a release from the Edinburg Police Department.
The charges stem from a crash at the intersection of Trenton Road and Closner Boulevard.
According to police, Torres was driving a white Chevrolet Silverado when he ran a red light and struck a white BMW. A man and woman were inside the BMW. Both were taken to a Doctors Hospital at Renaissance, where the driver, 26 year-old Adrienne Anna Garza was pronounced dead.
Authorities said Torres was arrested and suspected of driving while intoxicated. Police were able to obtain a blood specimen through a search warrant.
This is an ongoing investigation.
What if the car accident wasn’t my fault?
In most cases, if you were injured in a car accident due to the negligence of someone else, you should be entitled to compensation.
Texas requires all drivers to carry car insurance with minimum amounts of liability coverage – giving you a few different options to recover compensation if you sustain an injury in a crash that wasn’t your fault. These options include:
- Filing a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance policy
- Filing a claim with your own insurance company
- Pursuing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver
It’s important to note that under the state’s comparative negligence laws, if you’re found to be partially at-fault for your car accident, then your compensation can be reduced by the percentage of fault you’re assigned for the crash.
