HOUSTON, TX – A suspect has been charged with manslaughter for his role in the fatal wreck that was reported on the South Loop on the night of Thursday, June 17, per the Houston Police Department.
25-year-old Aaron Stephon O’Quinn was speeding in a black Mercedes CLA near 7100 South Loop East when he lost control of his vehicle and collided into a gray GMC Sierra. The force of the crash caused the GMC to veer off the road and hit a concrete bridge pillar. The driver of the GMC, a 25-year-old man, was thrown from his car and declared dead at the scene of the crash.
During the course of the crash, a toolbox flew from the GMC and hit a nearby gray Jeep Cherokee. Luckily, no one inside was hurt. The Mercedes hit a nearby retaining wall and O’Quinn was taken to the hospital for treatment. He has since been charged with manslaughter and will be taken to jail once he is released from the hospital.
