SAN ANTONIO - A woman has been charged with intoxication manslaughter after police say she struck and killed a teenager Tuesday night.
Emergency crews were called to Mulberry and St. Mary's Street around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Investigators say 30-year-old Amy Humphreys lost control of her Toyota Camry as she was driving out of a parking lot at a high rate of speed. The car hit 19-year-old Cedrych Carrisalez, who was jogging along curb line of East Mulberry, continued westbound through the parking lot and then hit a curb and a utility pole behind the building at the corner. Police say Carrisalez was thrown from the windshield of the car and into the rear of the building.
Carrisalez was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC), but died of his injuries. Carrisalez is known as "Yanni" by his friends and family. The teens father is a paramedic, and was one of the first responders on the scene.
Investigators say Humphrey's was intoxicated. She was booked for intoxication manslaughter and possession of marijuana.
Amy Humphrey's was charged with DWI back in 2009. She served a year of probation for the prior DWI offense.
"It's unbelievable that this type of action continues, and there's really no repercussion, " said Hector Carrisalez, the teens uncle.
Last week Mothers Against Drunk Driving went to Austin to talk to lawmakers about drinking and driving.
MADD is asking lawmakers to have all first time offenders have a mandatory ignition interlock installed in their cars. The agency would also like to see mandatory DWI check points through out the state.
"I think that's a great start, " added Carrisalez.
The Carrisalez family knows they'll never get their loved one back, but they hope something good comes out of this tragedy.
Amy Humphrey's remains behind bars.
