Susan Dominguez Killed in Alleged Intoxicated Driver Accident in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — November 5, 2023, Susan Dominguez was killed and three were hurt after an alleged intoxicated driver accident just after midnight on I-45.

Houston Police and Harris County officials released information showing the crash happened at around 12:45 a.m. along northbound lanes of the 9100 block of the North Freeway.

Susan Dominguez Killed in Alleged Intoxicated Driver Accident in Houston, TX

Current information from authorities says that a Chevy Silverado and a Volkswagen Rabbit were both going along I-45 when, for reasons unclear, the Silverado crashed into the back of the Volkswagen. As a result, Susan Dominguez, said to be a passenger in one of the vehicles, died from her injuries. Three others had reportedly minor injuries.

Statements from authorities allege that the driver of the Chevy fled the scene on foot but was identified by authorities. There appear to be pending charges for failure to stop and render aid as well as intoxication manslaughter against.

Right now, there is no mention of further pending charges, but that could change depending on what authorities uncover as they continue their investigations. Just after midnight, an intoxicated driving accident usually involves a drunk driver on their way home from a bar or another similar establishment. In the past when I've been in Harris County for a wrongful death case against a bar for their role in a drunk driving accident, there is almost always a parallel criminal case happening at the same time. Harris County officials are generally more dedicated to charging negligent alcohol providers after serious accidents like this, and I'm wondering if we'll be seeing that initiative should investigations show alcohol was indeed a factor here.
