You can be charged with intoxicated assault if you were operating a vehicle
under the influence of alcohol and were involved in an accident that resulted
in the injury of another person. Texas Penal Code §49.07 states that
any person accused of this crime will be charged with a second-degree
felony. Intoxicated assault occurs when a person causes serious bodily
injury to another person or passenger of their own car as a direct result
of driving under the influence.
Texas Penal Code §49.08 states that anyone operating any motorized
vehicle - including a car, boat, aircraft or even amusement park ride
- who is found with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher and causes
an accident that results in the death of another individual can be charged
with intoxicated manslaughter. This form of manslaughter, sometimes referred
to as vehicular manslaughter, can result in lengthy prison stays and hefty
fines upon conviction. You may also run the risk of having this felony
offense elevated to a more serious charge.
