After a fiery five-car accident in College Station last year that left another driver seriously injured, a Brenham man was booked into Brazos County Detention Center on Wednesday and now faces multiple charges.
On Texas Avenue and Harvey Mitchell Parkway, JB Obrian Wright, 22, allegedly crashed into another vehicle while driving too fast and through a red light. Both vehicles caught fire after the collision, but their drivers survived.
There were three other vehicles at the intersection, and all of them were damaged in the collision.
According to a probable cause affidavit, the driver of the car Wright hit suffered a lacerated spleen, fractured pelvic bone, fractured ribs, concussion, head laceration, and serious injuries to his knee that required surgery. Injuries were also sustained by the drivers of the other three vehicles.
One victim complained to police that she couldn’t sleep because she was “seeing all the blood at the scene” in her nightmares and was experiencing anxiety and insomnia as a result.
After the collision, Wright was taken to the hospital, and the police noted in their report that he smelled of alcohol.
Evidence obtained by police from a restaurant on University Drive revealed that the driver had consumed two shots of tequila and a large margarita about three hours prior to the crash. After leaving the restaurant, police were also able to confirm that he went to a bar on Texas Avenue.
The police examined Wright’s vehicle’s electronic recording devices and determined that he was travelling at around 85 miles per hour at the time of impact with no indication that he had slowed down before the collision.
