Bexar County Grand Jury indicts man for Dec. 2020 crash that left two people dead

This week, two new Bexar County Grand Juries handed down 61 felony indictments. 

Alejandro Montoya Rodriguez is charged in two separate indictments with intoxication manslaughter. The indictments allege that on Dec. 24, 2020, Montoya Rodriguez operated a motor vehicle in a public place while intoxicated, and did by reason of such intoxication cause the deaths of David Alaquinez and Jay Mejia by accident or mistake by driving said motor vehicle into a motor vehicle occupied by Mejia. The indictments also allege that Montoya Rodriguez recklessly caused the death of Mejia by driving under the influence of intoxicants, by driving on the wrong side of the roadway, by failing to drive on the proper side of the highway/roadway, and by failing to take necessary and proper evasive action to avoid driving said motor vehicle into a motor vehicle occupied by Alaquinez and Mejia. These cases are being prosecuted by the Criminal Trial Division in the 144th District Court. Intoxication 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.
