Baytown man charged with intoxication manslaughter weeks after high-speed crash in Spring
Oct. 09, 2019
A man was charged Tuesday with intoxication manslaughter almost three weeks after causing a deadly high-speed crash in Spring, according to court records.
Jahson Trevone Albert, 24, was driving faster than 80 mph on Sept. 26 when he crashed into Jacquelyn Pleytez's car on the Interstate 45 service road at Cypresswood. Pleytez was hospitalized with a skull fracture and a brain bleed, and she was pronounced dead Oct. 3.
Deputies say Albert consented to a blood draw. Medical records show THC in his system at the time of the crash, according to court records.
Albert had been traveling north on the Interstate 45 service road at Cypresswood when he sped through a school zone outside Spring High School, court records say. He side swiped two cars and struck a third before hitting two curbs, records say.
The second curb caused the car to go airborne before it landed and crashed into Pleytez's car. His bond has not yet been set.
