HOUSTON—A 25-year-old Houston man was charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter late Monday in a crash that killed three teenage girls last week.


Prosecutors say Sajan Timalshina was drunk behind the wheel of a Toyota Camry when he ran a red light and smashed into a Ford Excursion on July 9.


The crash occurred around 1:30 a.m. as Timalshina was headed north on the Highway 59 feeder and the SUV, which was carrying two adults and five teenagers, was headed east on the Sam Houston Tollway feeder.


Two of the teen passengers – 13-year-old Avianca Cortez and 17-year-old Rashaunda Raleigh – were ejected from the SUV and died at the scene.


A third passenger, 13-year-old Detrihanna Davis, died the next day at the hospital. They were not wearing seatbelts, police said.


The other occupants of the car were taken to the hospital in serious condition and have since been released.


According to court documents, Timalshina failed field sobriety tests at the scene. When police asked for a voluntary blood sample, Timalshina refused, but officers were able to get an involuntary sample because the accident was fatal.


That sample was taken at Ben Taub about three and a half hours after the crash and registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.075, police said.


After performing a retrograde analysis of the sample, officers determined Timalshina’s blood-alcohol level at the time of the accident was between 0.127 and 0.162.


In Texas, a person whose blood-alcohol level is 0.08 or higher is legally intoxicated.


According to court documents, Timalshina gave a voluntary statement to officers after the crash, saying that he was driving his brother’s Camry, had worked a 16-hour day and was confused about where he was going because he was tired.


Timalshina told officers he’d seen a green light farther up the road and mistakenly thought it was the nearest signal when he ran the red light and hit the SUV.


In a second statement, Timalshina told police he’d had a 12 oz. Corona at his brother’s work just before 1 a.m., but he’d only consumed a fourth of the beer.


Police said a big-rig driver, who waiting at the red light at the time of the crash, saw the whole thing.


"When the light turned green, he noticed that the Toyota Camry traveling north was traveling at a high rate of speed and he felt that he wasn’t gonna stop so he stayed where he was at," said HPD Sgt. I. Izaguirre. "But the Ford Excursion didn’t see that car..."


One of the surviving girls, 14-year-old Necie Davis, described herself going in and out of consciousness after the crash.


"I felt the car hit the other car and then after that I just blanked out and when I kind of looked around and Avianca Cortez was laying on top of me and I was trying to see if she was still here," said Davis. "I was trying to get her up, but I couldn’t really move."


Davis, who was released from the hospital late Friday, said she and her friends were on their way home from a party when they were hit.


"We always went places with each other," said Davis. "I wish I could see them one last time at least. I didn’t get to tell them I love them or anything."


Timalshina's bond was set at $150,000

I feel very sorry for the family members who died in the crash. I feel Sad for Nepali Fellow as well. Everything happened in the wrong time in the wrong place. He intentionally or unintentional took someone's life. 

From this incident, I truely request all people not to drink and drive and never speed up to cross the RED light which is the major cause of fatal accident. 

Please people don't take any alcoholic drinks if you are driving because it will affect your life as well as it will make a big difference in others life as well

walkahead.

GrgBro: It's not bad luck. You make a conscious decision when you pick up that drink knowing that you will be driving afterwards... I have no sympathy for drunk drivers... They are like suicide bombers but with no agenda...

Very very sad. Feeling bad for both families. 
So, where is Sajan now? Is he in transit or reached Nepal or police caught and back to US prison? 

What punishment he would face if he got arrested? and what new punishment after attempt to flee?

If he was very drunk then he is to blame but it would be interesting to know what would have happened if he was not drunk.

It is amazing how the law works. One minute you're a free man with free liberties and whammm one accident and you could be locked up for the rest of your life.

If by a fluke auto accident you killed 3 people. Would you be jailed?

Let's say you were driving straight and you had to sneeze and you let it out. So for few seconds your eyes could be closed and you didn't see a person who just walked into the street to cross it. If the person dies, do you get jailed for life?? Let's say there were 3 people who got killed. What would happen to you?

Driver in wreck that killed 3 flees

HPD plans to seek extradition of Nepal native




A Spring man accused
of intoxication manslaughter in the deaths of three teens last week has
fled the country, authorities said Tuesday.

Sajan Timalshina,
25, is believed to have fled to Qatar last Friday, the same day his car
collided with a sport utility vehicle in northeast Houston in the early
morning hours, killing three girls, according to Houston Police
Department spokesman Victor Senties.


"It is believed that
he's trying to get back to his home country of Nepal," Senties said.


The spokesman said
HPD investigators will be contacting the U.S. Marshals Service to make
arrangements for his arrest there and extradition to the United States.


Donna
Hawkins, a spokeswoman for the Harris County District Attorney's office,
said Timalshina had been detained after the accident, but was not
arrested. She said he had not been charged because further investigation
was needed and the DA's office had not been made aware that Timalshina
was a potential flight risk.


Timalshina
was charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter on Monday.


He could
face 60 years in prison if convicted of all three second-degree
felonies.


According to
investigators, Timalshina was northbound in a Toyota Camry about 1:30
a.m. July 9 in the 6100 block of the North Sam Houston Parkway service
road east when he ran a red light at the Eastex Freeway. Police said
Timalshina's car collided with a Ford Expedition moving through the
intersection on a green light.


RaShaunda Raleigh,
17, and Avianca Cortez, 13, were thrown from the Expedition and died at
the scene. A third girl, Detrihanna Davis, 13, was taken to Ben Taub
General Hospital, where she later died.


The girls, along
with two other friends and one girl's mother, were being driven home by
Raleigh's father from a "teen night" at a club on FM 1960.


According to court
records, Timalshina failed field sobriety tests at the scene. Police
took a blood sample from him at Ben Taub Hospital about three and a half
hours after the fatal crash. Though his blood-alcohol concentration was
determined to be .075 at the time of the test, analysts said it would
have been .16 at the time of the crash. The legal limit of intoxication
while operating a motor vehicle is set at .08.


Investigators said
Timal­shina told police he had worked 16 hours that day and became
confused about which traffic signal was his. He later told investigators
he had drunk about only a quarter of a 12-ounce beer earlier in the
evening.

Gosh, one more heart wrenching incident. Don't know what's going on with everybody these days but one thing i learned from this thread too. Not to drink and drive, which i sometimes do. Though i am not a huge drinker but still sometimes with few glass of drink i drive, i guess i should stop that... Anyway felt bad for the tragic loss of the family and for the Nepali guy too.

GrgBro: If he was not drunk, it will not be a criminal offence unless it can be proved in the court of law that he was driving carelessly or with intent to cause harm... So that would be a very different story if alcohol was not involved...


To all friends who drink and drive (I personally know a lot of Nepali folks who do this in regular basis), please stop!!!
