18-Year-Old Kevin Lozano Charged with Intoxication Assault After Crash

Attorney Analysis: See the second section of this article for legal commentary from attorney Marc Lenahan on your legal rights after getting hit by a drunk driver in Texas.

18-year-old Kevin Lozano was arrested on intoxication assault charges for allegedly driving drunk and injuring a 7-year-old boy on Sunday, May 24. He allegedly had over twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system at the time of the crash.

Lozano appeared before a judge overnight regarding the crash on Highway 6 near Pavillion Point.

According to the police, Lozano was driving southbound in a Nissan Maxima on Highway 6 and failed to yield the right of way while turning left, crashing into a Honda Accord.

A 26-year-old woman, her 7-year-old son, and two other people were in the Nissan. The child suffered head injuries and was flown to the hospital via LifeFlight. The 21-year-old driver and a 20-year-old passenger were hospitalized at Memorial Hermann Hospital - Katy. The man suffered a broken right arm and the woman had a broken leg.

Lozano was not hurt and reportedly admitted to drinking, according to the police. He has been charged with four counts of intoxication assault and four counts of failure to render aid. However, charges could be upgraded to felony murder if the child does not survive his injuries.

Financial Compensation After Getting Hit by a Drunk Driver in Texas

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents people who have been injured by drunk drivers and helps them recover the full financial compensation they deserve. We've asked Marc to discuss the financial compensation available to people injured by drunk drivers in Texas:

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by a drunk driver, you know how difficult the aftermath of the crash can be. Along with pain and suffering, you may be struggling with unmanageable medical bills and other financial difficulties. Fortunately, victims of drunk drivers often qualify for financial compensation.

Drunk drivers can be sued directly for injuries or deaths they've caused, but this is not always the only form of financial compensation available. In Texas and many other states, there are situations where something called a dram shop lawsuit is on the table. These are lawsuits filed against alcohol vendors or social hosts.

A dram shop lawsuit can be filed in Texas if:

  • alcohol was given or sold to someone under 18 years old, or
  • when the alcohol was provided, the person was already obviously intoxicated.
