HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A man has been charged and arrested in the fatal crash on Bellaire Boulevard early Sunday morning, according to documents.

The video above is from a previous report.

The accident, which occurred around 3:40 a.m. in the 9200 block of Bellaire, forced the westbound lanes to shut down for hours.

Luis Alejandro Avalos Avila, 22, now faces a charge of manslaughter by intoxication.

Avila, driving a red GMC Yukon, failed the field sobriety test and was taken into custody that morning, according to HPD.

Avila headed west on Bellaire, blowing through several lights. That morning, police said they believe several traffic lights in the area went out because of the overnight storm.

Avila then allegedly crashed into a black SUV traveling south on Ranchester, killing that driver at the scene.

The identity of the 30-year-old victim is not yet known.
