AS REPORTED IN THE LUFKIN DAILY NEWS:

A driver in an accident that killed one Pollok man and injured another last Wednesday will face criminal charges after he’s recovered from his injuries, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper.

Currently listed in good condition at Hermann Memorial Hospital in Houston, 19-year-old Isaac Tucker has a warrant out for his arrest on one count of intoxication manslaughter and one count of intoxication assault, according to DPS trooper Joe Wood.

“We’ve alerted the hospital and Houston Police, so they’re keeping an eye on him,” Wood said. “The warrant will not be served until he’s cleared medically. We’ll just have to wait and see how his recovery goes.”

Tucker’s 20-year-old passenger Nicholas Zayne Anthony, of Pollok, died at the scene, while passenger Ryan Walton, 19, of Pollok, was in critical condition in East Texas Medical Center Tyler as of Friday. An update on his condition Tuesday was not available, as he’s been listed as a “no information” patient, according to hospital officials.
