SAN ANTONIO – Police say she drank, drove and killed two people on Highway 90 over the weekend.
Records show this isn’t Ruby Bukvasevic’s first time behind bars for drinking and driving.
Counting Sunday’s deadly accident, this is now her third time in jail for getting behind the wheel drunk, according to Bexar County’s criminal records.
In October 1992, Bukvasevic was charged for driving while intoxicated and a judge put her on probation.
In September 2003, Bukvasevic got her second DWI charge and once again received probation.
Now, she’s charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter.
San Antonio police say she was driving her SUV west on Highway 90 just before 2 a.m. Sunday.
Officers say Bukvasevic was drunk when she drove over the center guardrail and hit a Lexus head-on, killing both the driver and passenger on impact.
Police identified the Lexus passengers as Corinne Hollingsworth from Round Rock and Raquel Cooney from Lubbock.
News 4 WOAI spoke with Robert Valdez, a lawyer who handles DWI cases, and asked what kind of punishment Bukvasevic could get. He says it’s very unlikely she would get probation, and two counts of intoxication manslaughter would come with up to 20 years in jail.
