HOUSTON – A man was in jail Monday after a weekend traffic accident took the life of the passenger he was driving with.

The accident happened around 6:30 a.m. Saturday at 3100 West Loop North.

According to police, suspect Rogelio Velazquez was driving a black GMC pickup truck northbound on West Loop and failed to stay in his lane. The GMC then stuck a tractor trailer truck, which was parked on the side of the road after losing some of its load.

The front passenger in the GMC died at the scene.

Velazquez was taken to the hospital he was transported into custody. He has since been charged with intoxication manslaughter.
