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.
