Jasmine Reynolds2 years ago

A trial has been set for the suspected drunk driver who injured three people in a Corpus Christi collision.

About the Corpus Christi Traffic Crash

A Nueces County grand jury decided there was enough evidence to charge 29-year-old Adrian Garza with intoxication assault.

In March, Garza crashed into a stalled car on South Staples near Lipes and seriously injured two men. The men were trying to push the stalled vehicle out of the roadway.

One of the victims, Johans Bravo, was a football player for the Bonecrushers, who had stopped to help James Thomson push the car – both men had to have a leg amputated because of their injuries.

A woman in the stalled car when it was hit escaped with minor injuries.

Garza could serve up to 10 years in prison.
