TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas — A man charged with intoxication assault after allegedly crashing into multiple cars Sunday night had two kids in his car at the time, according to our news partners at the Austin American-Statesman.
Police said a witness told them she drove past an Acura that was stopped at a green light at the 4800 black of U.S. 183. The witness stated she heard another vehicle honk its horn at the Acura, then saw the Acura "fly past her" when she was headed north at 55 mph.
The affidavit states the witness saw the Acura go from the far-right lane, across to the left lane, and slam into the back of a vehicle, which pushed into another vehicle in front of it.
The affidavit lists Bradley Costilla, 29, as the driver of the Acura that allegedly crashed into the vehicles, and he was charged with the intoxication assault.
At least one adult and three kids were injured in the three-vehicle crash near Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
Austin-Travis County EMS said one woman was transported to South Austin Hospital with serious, potentially life-threatening injuries. Another adult was transported to an undisclosed hospital, according to ATCEMS. However, the Austin Police Department reported only one adult was transported.
Officials said three kids were also transported to Dell Children's Medical Center: a male with critical, life-threatening injuries; a female with serious, potentially life-threatening injuries; and a male with minor, non-life-threatening injuries.
According to the affidavit, one of the children injured in the crash is a 9-year-old who has been unresponsive since. The 9-year-old suffered a broken wrist and a subdural hematoma, police said.
According to The Statesman, an 11-year-old and a 4-year-old were in Costilla's vehicle.
ATCEMS said four patients on scene refused transport.
Costilla reportedly tried to flee on foot before police used force to detain him and, according to The Statesman, has been charged with evading arrest on top of two counts of intoxication assault. Costilla is being held on a $185,000 bond, according to The Statesman.
