The two drivers involved in the vehicle accident that killed Sealy resident Kristina Murray admitted that they had been drinking, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety report filed from the accident.
The drivers, 21 year-old Jonathan Galvan and 18 year-old Kyle Supak, were tested for blood alcohol content. The results were not available as of press time and charges are still pending.
Murray was killed the night of Memorial Day, May 28, on FM 529 on the Brazos River bridge.
DPS Trooper James Gonzales reported that there were beer cans in and outside the vehicles. He concluded that two vehicles were racing, but it is still an ongoing investigation and charges are pending, according to his report.
Any charges against the men would be dealt with in Waller County, according to DPS.
According to the DPS report, Murray, 18, was ejected from the 2003 Dodge pickup truck she was a passenger in. The truck was driven by Bellville resident Galvan.
Gonzales said it is unknown if Murray was wearing a seatbelt. Cody Collin Knoll, 19, was also a passenger in Galvan’s vehicle. Knoll suffered minor injuries but refused going in an ambulance.
A second Dodge pickup, driven by Kyle Supak was also involved in the accident. Ryan Supak, 19, was a passenger in the second truck.
Both drivers were traveling west on FM 529 when Galvan attempted to pass Supak on the bridge. Both vehicles were driving side by side when they were startled by an oncoming vehicle, Gonzales reported. The trucks collided and Supak’s struck the guardrail. Galvan lost control and struck the guardrail on the south side of the bridge and continued along the guardrail before coming to a final rest.
At that time Murray was ejected from Galvan’s truck onto the roadway.
Supak continued until he came to a rest on the north side of the guardrail, according to the DPS report.
Gonzales said, in his opinion, given evidence left on scene, that the two vehicles were “in a contest of speed (racing).”
The investigation and any possible charges are pending.
