One man is dead and another is injured after being struck by a vehicle in Galveston, Texas last week.
Raphael Flajole was killed in last Monday after being hit by a truck along the Galveston seawall.
Flajole, from Orion Township, Michigan, was in Texas for a family celebration when a pickup truck crossed through several lanes of traffic and struck him while he was on the sidewalk.
The driver had just turned on 21st street and was headed westbound when he began swerving across all lanes of traffic and hit Flajole and one other person.
Flajole was pronounced dead at the scene. The other pedestrian was taken transported to the hospital.
Police are still investigating whether the driver of the pickup truck, Kevin Wade Wilson, was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Wilson has been charged with manslaughter and before the accident he had been on probation for a narcotics conviction.
