A paramedic’s son died after he was struck by a car and smashed into a wall Tuesday night.
According to police, 19-year-old Cedrych Carrisalez was walking along the curb on Mulberry about 11:40 p.m. when a speeding gold Toyota Camry driven by 30-year-old Amy Humphreys struck him.
The Camry driver continued until she hit a pole through the parking lot.
Carrisalez flew off the Camry’s windshield after the strong impact and slammed into the wall of a building.
He was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center where doctors revived him three times, but was later pronounced dead.
Authorities recovered marijuana inside Humphreys’ car. She was detained and charged with intoxication manslaughter. She remains in jail in place of posting $100,000 bail.
Humphreys was also charged with possession of marijuana in October 2008 and driving while intoxicated in October 2009. She pleaded no contest to both offence and was given probation.
The father of the victim, Oscar Carrisalez, was the paramedic on duty during the night of the accident.
