An accident that occurred late Wednesday night where the victim, 22-year-old Andrea Osmara Rodriguez-Perez was rushed to the hospital. The wreck took place in Dallas near Davis Street and Westmoreland Road.
The crash was caused by a drunk driver who hit the victim's vehicle, causing her vehicle to hit the one in front of her. The drunk driver that caused this hit-and-run accident fled the scene.
After Rodriguez-Perez arrived to the hospital, she passed away. Police did find the suspect, who was arrested for intoxication manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid.
At my firm, I’ve seen countless victims of drunk driving accidents suffer very serious injuries, but it never gets any easier, especially since drunk driving accidents are one hundred percent avoidable. I know this must be a difficult time for the victim's family, and I wish them a speedy recovery.
