Deylan Braxton, 27, Bayou Body Count No. 11
A late-night traffic accident near downtown has resulted in intoxication manslaughter charges against the driver, Houston police say.
Deylan Braxton, 27, was in the backseat of a silver BMW traveling southbound on Dowling when the driver, Jason Deran McCoy, 28, ran a red light on Polk about 4:30 a.m. on Saturday, police say.
The BMW "struck a black Dodge Caliber traveling eastbound on Polk. The BMW slid southbound on Dowling, struck a tree, bounced off a brick business building and struck a telephone pole before coming to a stop," HPD said.
Braxton was taken to Ben Taub, where he died. None of the other passengers or the two drivers suffered serious injuries.
