25 YEARS FOR DRUNKEN DRIVER WHO KILLED 3 MOTORCYCLISTS
A 22-year-old drunken driver admitted today in a Travis County court to causing an April crash on East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard that left three people dead, his defense lawyer said.
Mario Hernandez-Rodriguez pleaded guilty to three counts of intoxication manslaughter and three counts of failure to stop and render aid under a plea bargain with prosecutors that will land him in jail for 25 years, said defense lawyer Leonard Martinez.
At 1:47 a.m. on April 5, Hernandez-Rodriguez was driving a pickup on East Martin Luther King near Springdale Road when the truck veered into oncoming traffic, hitting a Mercedes and two motorcycles, police said. Hernandez-Rodriguez fled on foot but was caught by police, officials said.
The driver of one of the motorcycles, Maurice Britt, 36, died at the scene. His passenger, Audra Britt, 30, died later, as did the driver of the other motorcycle, Keith Haliburton, 42.
State District Judge Mike Lynch today sentenced Hernandez-Rodriguez to 20 years in prison for each count of intoxication manslaughter. The sentences will run concurrently. On Jan. 21, Lynch is scheduled to sentence him to five years on each count of failure to stop and render aid, with those sentences to run concurrently. The five-year sentences will run consecutively to the 20-year sentences, Martinez said.
Family members of the victim will be allowed to address Hernandez-Rodriguez on the 21st.
