Intoxication Manslaughter: Phillip L. Trahan sentenced to 18 years for the death of a cyclist in Pundt Park on Friday, March 23, 2018

SPRING, Texas (KTRK) — A man has been sentenced to 18 years in prison after being found guilty of drunken manslaughter and failure to stop and provide assistance to the death of a 68-year-old woman.

The video above is from a previous report.

The cyclist, who has not yet been publicly identified, was out and about in Pundt Park on Friday March 23, 2018. They were traveling with seven other people.

“They were about to cross a crosswalk when one of them was hit by a vehicle,” said Pct. 4 Police officer Mark Herman in 2018.

There were two men in the small SUV.

The driver, Philip Trahan, left the scene and drove his compact SUV into a wooded area, according to Herman.

“They fell,” Herman said.

By this time a perimeter had been established around the park.

A few minutes later, the 37-year-old and his passenger, 44-year-old Angel Escobar, were arrested.

Trahan was charged with drunkenness, manslaughter and failure to provide assistance. Escobar was accused of failing to report a crime.

According to public records, Trahan lives less than five minutes from the park where the woman was beaten and killed.

Trahan’s last charge on his criminal record was 10 years prior to March 23, 2018. His previous convictions and guilty pleas include two counts of marijuana possession, home burglary and theft.
