2 Pronounced Dead, 52-Year-Old Woman Charged after DUI Crash near Interstate 358

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (May 29, 2024)Carmen Guevara was arrested early Sunday morning, after a fatal DUI crash on Airline Road.

The incident happened around 12:35 a.m., in the 1500 block of Airline Road near Interstate 358 on May 19th.

Investigators say the driver of a northbound truck attempted to turn west into a private driveway.

The vehicle then struck a southbound motorcyclist that failed to yield to the right of way.

Upon arrival, authorities discovered a 32-year-old man dead on the road next to his motorcycle with fatal injuries. Paramedics transported his 30-year-old female passenger to a local hospital with serious injuries, where she later died.

The truck’s driver, 52-year-old Carmen Guevara, remained at the scene and was taken to a local hospital. Police then arrested Guevara, charging her with two counts of intoxicated manslaughter and holding her on a $1,000,000 bond.

Emergency personnel shut down the surrounding area for a brief time during cleanup and preliminary duties.

At this time, the Corpus Christi Police Department continues to investigate the crash. Once available, further details will be provided.
