JERSEY VILLAGE, TX – A Houston man who caused a deadly wreck in Jersey Village was live-streamed drinking while driving shortly before the accident, according to the team at 95.5 WSB.

A video recorded by the girlfriend of 47-year-old Camilo Morejon shows him drinking a beer while driving. In the video, Morejon is heard saying that he drives better when he drinks.

Ten minutes later, he crashed into a pickup truck that was pulling into a gas station, located at 12230 FM 529. The driver of the pickup truck was thrown from his car and suffered a brain bleed and a broken arm. Three passengers in Morejon’s car were killed upon impact. The accident occurred on Sunday morning.

He has since been charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter.
