On Wednesday, a Texas judge set bond at $50,000 for a woman who was allegedly drunk when she struck and killed a pedestrian earlier this month.
KTRK reported that Kristina Chambers, 32, hit Joseph McMullin, 33, on a road in Montrose on April 19. Chambers’ blood alcohol content level was allegedly four times the legal limit, and she was possibly found in possession of Adderall and cocaine after the deadly wreck.
Police believe Chambers was driving her Porsche 911 Carrera at 100 miles per hour before the crash. The Houston Chronicle reported that McMullin’s body flew roughly 30 feet on impact, killing him at the scene.
According to reports, McMullin was on a first date at the time of the crash. The woman was not hurt.
“We had gone to karaoke at AvantGarden. When we got out, the taco truck was closed, but he knew Voodoo would be open,” the woman told KTRK. “He asked if I wanted to take my car. I said, ‘Well, it’s not that far. We can walk. Fresh air.’
Chambers reportedly broke her leg and clavicle in the wreck. She had careened into a pole after mowing down McMullin, per the Houston Chronicle.
There was reportedly a man and another woman in Chambers’ car at the time of the crash. The woman is stable but the man’s current condition was not disclosed.
Chambers is charged with intoxication manslaughter. As a condition of her release, she is required to install a landline in her home and is barred from driving unless it is for work.
DailyMail reports that Chambers is the “unemployed wife of wealthy Texas trader Xuan Si.”
