Mason Nelson, 14, and Sam Mixon, 14, killed, one other critically injured following suspected DWI collision on 41st Street and Avenue O in Galveston, Texas
At about 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Galveston police began an investigation of a fatal crash near 41st Street and Avenue O across from Ball High School.
A man arrested in a Galveston crash on Friday that killed a teen and critically injured two other people had just been let out on parole for his third driving while intoxicated conviction, according to court records.
Texas prison records show that Brazier was in prison, serving a three-year sentence for driving while intoxicated and cocaine possession.
The man behind the SUV, 28-year-old Keith Brazier, had just gotten out of prison on parole hours earlier, and Galveston police believe he was drinking and driving when Nelson was killed and two others in the Jeep were critically injured.
The community came together on Tuesday night holding a vigil for Mason Nelson and three other Ball High School students who were also in the car.
A 14-year-old who had been fighting for his life since a crash involving a repeat DWI offender has died, Galveston ISD said on Friday.
