Moses Mwangi, a 26-year-old Kenyan driver living in Dallas, United States, was on Sunday arrested and charged with manslaughter and intoxication.
Police said on Tuesday said he was behind the wheel of a vehicle that crashed into and killed a young couple near the Dallas North Tollway.
Mr. Mwangi was driving drunk when he crashed into another car and killed Promise Hamilton 23, and Luis Solano 26, police said.
The 26-year-old was going eastbound on Frankford Road early Sunday when he hit a car carrying the pair. The deceased were said to have exited the Tollway and were about to pick up her relatives on the way to the airport so she could fly to France to resume at her place of work.
Although, Mr. Mwangi was rushed to Medical City Plano where he was initially in critical condition and had since been discharged and handed over to the police.
According to Fox News, Mr. Mwangi’s bond is set at ($500,000) and ($250,000) for each of the two counts of intoxication and manslaughter.
