UPDATE: Man charged with intoxication assault for crash on Wellborn Road
Witnesses said David Hammond was going as fast as 100 mph on Wellborn Road before striking another vehicle causing it to rollover.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - College Station police have arrested a man who they say caused a crash that left a woman with serious injuries early Sunday morning on Wellborn Road.
David Andrew Hammond, 31, of College Station, is in jail and charged with Intoxicated Assault with a Vehicle causing Seriously Bodily Injury.
Police say Hammond slammed his car into the back of an SUV around 3:00 a.m. Sunday on Wellborn near Deacon Drive. The impact was strong enough that it flipped the SUV onto its top and ejected one of the passengers inside.
The victim was found with a broken jaw and a serious head/brain injury. A police report completed early Sunday morning said she was still being evaluated at the hospital. We’ve reached out to CSPD to get a more updated report of her condition.
According to Hammond’s arrest report, he couldn’t remember where he was coming from when the crash happened but officers noticed his eyes were bloodshot and they could smell alcohol on his breath. Hammond declined to answer questions and said “I want to talk to my lawyer,” according to the report.
Witnesses told police it appeared Hammond was going at least 100 mph before he collided with the SUV.
Hammond was the only person in his car. There were other people in the SUV, but it’s unclear what their condition is.
According to online jail records, this is Hammond’s second DWI arrest. His first was in 2012 in Brazos County. As of Sunday night, he remained in jail with a $15,000 bond.
Wellborn Road was closed for several hours Sunday morning as police conducted their investigation.
