The crash disabled the Intidams' car in the center lane and knocked out their taillights,a second truck hit the Intidams as they were trying to exit their vehicle. Najib Intidam died at the scene of the crash. Hanane and Nour el Houda were rushed to Arlington Memorial Hospital, where they later died.
The family had moved to North Texas from their native Morocco. Prosecutor Katie Woods said, "Tarrant County citizens came to the right verdict on a tough case and now the defendant will be held responsible for taking three lives by getting behind the wheel while he was intoxicated. Because of his selfish actions, this young married couple never got to see their precious daughter’s first birthday." Stewart elected to have a judge assess his punishment.
