CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A 30-year-old Corpus Christi woman is being held on intoxicated manslaughter and intoxicated assault charges following a fatal hit-and-run incident.
Corpus Christi Police say Christine Griffin hit a 56-year-old man who was pushing a 57-year-old woman in a wheelchair around 9 p.m. Friday. Both were taken to a local hospital where the man died. The victims' names were not released.
Police found a Ford pickup truck parked in the parking lot of a nearby apartment complex with damage on the front. Police determined Griffin had been driving the truck and was intoxicated. Griffin was also charged with accident involving injury or death. She was being held at the Nueces County Jail on $570,000 bond Saturday. It was not known if she had a lawyer.
