A TCU student faces charges of intoxication manslaughter after the vehicle he was driving hit another vehicle over the weekend and killed a 46-year-old Fort Worth woman, police said Monday.
A second TCU student, who was riding in the same vehicle, faces a charge of public intoxication.
Police identified the driver as Jonathan Lucas Reed, 22, of Houston, who was arrested Saturday night and was later released after posting bail. His passenger, John Morgan, 23, also was taken into custody and released during the weekend after posting bail.
The victim was identified as Elena DeFlores of Fort Worth. She died at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth on Saturday night shortly after the wreck, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.
The crash was reported just after 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the 3300 block of Granbury Road, a few blocks south of the TCU campus.
DeFlores was driving a 2003 Saturn VUE when her vehicle and the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Reed collided, according to a police report.
Reed and Morgan are seniors at TCU, according to TCU records.
“If a student’s off-campus behavior may affect the campus community, he/she may be charged with a violation of the student code of conduct,” Holly Ellman, a TCU spokeswoman, said Monday. “So it is possible that one or both of them may face a judicial hearing.”
Morgan is majoring in entrepreneurial management and Reed is studying criminal justice, according to TCU360.com.
