A white 2006 Honda Accord, driven by Tyler Lewis, 17, of Jasper, was heading southbound on South First Street when he made a sudden lane change and was rear-ended by a 2022 Ford Bronco driven by Michael Allman, 24, of Lufkin.
The impact caused both vehicles to spin into the median. The Bronco then hit a light pole.
Three passengers in the Accord, Robertson and two others, were pronounced dead at the scene. Two other passengers in the Accord were airlifted to an out-of-town hospital for treatment while the sixth passenger was treated and released at a local hospital.
Neither Lewis nor his passengers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.
Lewis was taken into custody after being treated and released at a local hospital. He was awaiting three counts of intoxication manslaughter charges with additional charges pending at the Angelina County Jail.
Lewis was released from the Angelina County Jail on Monday after posting a bond of $150,000.
The crash remains under investigation.
