Four Injured in Houston Two-Vehicle Crash on Highway 6 at Pavilion Point; Kevin Lozano Arrested
Houston, Texas (May 25, 2020) – Four people, including a 7-year-old boy, were injured Sunday night in a DUI crash in Houston, according to police.
The crash happened around 9:25 p.m. May 24, in the 7800 block of Highway 6 at Pavilion Point.
Police said 18-year-old Kevin Lozano was driving a black Nissan Maxima southbound on the highway when he failed to yield the right away and turned in front of a black Honda Accord, resulting in a collision.
Lozano fled the scene after the accident, but he later returned to the scene on his own. He was highly intoxicated at the time of the crash, and he admitted to drinking before the crash.
Two people in the Maxima, a woman who was in the passenger seat and the 7-year-old boy who was unrestrained in the back seat, were airlifted to the hospital.
The 7-year-old boy had facial, skull, and basal fractures while the woman had a broken right leg.
The Accord driver, a 21-year-old man, and his passenger, a 20-year-old woman, were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Katy by an ambulance. The man had a broken right arm, and the woman had a broken leg.
Lozano was uninjured in the crash. He is not related to the two passengers in his car. He has been charged with four counts of failure to stop and render aid and four counts of Intoxication Assault.
More charges could come, including for those who served alcohol to Lozano.
The crash remains under investigation.
We hope the injured victims recover quickly.
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 you have been injured because of a drunk driver, you will want a knowledgeable accident lawyer to bring a personal injury action against the drunk driver.
