Intoxication Manslaughter Charge for Hwy 361 Crash

CORPUS CHRISTI - Samuel Herrera, 24, is charged with intoxication manslaughter for a crash on Hwy 361, near Newport Pass, during Spring Break.

Herrera was driving a truck that slammed head-on into a car, killing 20-year-old Angel Zavala, according to police.

A few minutes after the crash, a passerby stopped to help. That man's car was hit by another driver who didn't see all the trouble ahead due to thick fog. No one was injured in the second crash.

Herrera's been in the hospital since Sunday's crash.
