38-Year-Old Man Killed in Houston Bicycle Accident on West Little York near T.C. Jester; Ronald Sariles Arrested

Houston, Texas (December 2, 2021) – A 38-year-old man was killed in a bicycle accident early Monday morning in northwest Houston, according to the police.

The deadly accident happened around 2:20 a.m., November 29, in the 3100 block of West Little York near T.C. Jester.

Police said the man was riding his bicycle westbound in the far-right lane when he was struck by a speeding pickup truck driven by Ronald Ariel Sariles, 24.

The truck then left the roadway, hit a brick wall and a utility pole before coming to a stop on its side.

The bicycle had a working red flashing light mounted on the rear at the time of the crash.

The bicyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not been released.

Sariles and his 19-year-old female passenger, who was ejected, were taken to a local hospital for treatment. 

Sariles has been charged with intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault.

The police are investigating the crash.

In Texas, a driver is legally intoxicated after consuming alcohol if their blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08% or higher. A driver is also considered intoxicated if they don’t have the normal use of their mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol. Alcohol however is not the only intoxicant, as drivers can become intoxicated by ingesting prescription and illegal drugs such as crack, marijuana, and cocaine.

Regardless of what substance caused the driver’s reaction time to become significantly altered, intoxication by any means can cause terrible accidents and injuries.

Innocent victims harmed by drunk drivers are entitled to compensation for their injuries, including but not limited to medical expenses; lost wages; pain and suffering and mental anguish; physical impairment and disability; and most importantly, punitive damages to deter future conduct. If a death occurred because of a drunk driver, you will want a knowledgeable accident lawyer to bring a wrongful death action against the drunk driver.
