COLLEGE STATION - An accused drunk driver is under arrest following a hit-and-run accident in a parking lot.

College Station police say 30-year-old Gabino Reyes-Vazquez was headed north on Wellborn Road Sunday evening. He lost control of his Mazda 6, went over a sidewalk and grassy embankment before colliding with an Ford F-250 parked in the lot of business near Rock Prairie Road.

The impact of the crash pushed the F-250 into the owner who was standing behind the pick-up truck. He was thrown several feet.
Reyes-Vazquez ran away, but witnesses were able to give a good description and he was located a short distance away.

Police say Reyes-Vazquez was driving while intoxicated and as a result “recklessly caused bodily injury to the victim by striking his parked (pickup). The Mazda 6 is now considered a weapon that was used in commission of a crime, so he’s also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is a second degree felony punishable by imprisonment of 2 to 20 years and a fine of up to $10,000.

The victim was treated for minor injuries at the College Station Medical Center.
