Manslaughter indictment handed down for Nov. 2020 fatal car crash

This week, Bexar County Grand Juries handed down 242 felony indictments.

Ivan Joseph Duran is charged with manslaughter. The indictment alleges that on Nov. 15, 2020, Duran recklessly caused the death of Dominique Orta by driving and operating a motor vehicle at a speed that was not reasonable and prudent under the circumstances then existing, driving and operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, driving a motor vehicle into the oncoming lane of traffic, attempting to pass another vehicle when it was not reasonable and prudent under the circumstances then existing, and failing to take proper and necessary evasive action to avoid colliding with another motor vehicle in which Orta was a passenger. This case is being prosecuted by the Criminal Trial Division in the 144th District Court. Manslaughter is a second degree felony punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison and a possible fine of up to $10,000.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt. A person charged by indictment is presumed innocent until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury or a judge. Because these and potentially other cases are either pending or may be under investigation, we can make no further comment on them.

Copies of indictments may be requested from the Bexar County District Clerk. Information on court settings can be found by searching the case online or directly from the court.
