A man was indicted last week on four felony charges after he allegedly caused a car crash on November 27, 2021 that killed a detective and seriously injured the officer’s wife and sons.

A Tarrant County Grand Jury indicted Dylan Molina on one charge of intoxication manslaughter and three charges of intoxication assault for allegedly causing the car crash that killed Detective Alejandro Cervantes of the Euless Police Department.

The crash also left the detective’s wife Priscilla and two young sons, 12-year-old Joshua and 11-year-old Jake, critically injured.

Per a CBS 11 News report, police say Cervantes was driving a Chevy Impala with his wife and two sons when Molina ran a red light and crashed into them.

Police said that a witness at the crash site told them that Molina fled after the crash.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Molina’s breath smelled of alcohol when officers approached him. Police carried out a breathalyzer test and found that his alcohol level was 0.144, the affidavit says. The legal limit is 0.08.

Investigators also said they found a THC-laced vape pen and that Molina apparently admitted to drinking three double Vodka Red Bulls at a Fuzzy’s Tacos restaurant during a two hour stay at the restaurant.
