A suspected drunk driver faces two counts of intoxication manslaughter following an early morning collision near the intersection of Interstate 35 and Walzem Road.
KSAT reports two women in their early 20s died and a man was hospitalized following a suspected drunk driving crash that occurred around 2:45 am Saturday.

The F350 then slammed into a Nissan Rogue between Eisenhauer Road and Walzem Road. Officers found the truck overturn and on fire. The driver was pulled from the F-350, but the two occupants of the Rogue were pronounced dead at the scene.
One of the deceased victims has been identified as 25-year-old Daniela Lute. The identity of the other victim, a 27-year-old woman, has not been released.
