Curfew part of bond conditions for teen charged in deadly DWI crash

December 19, 2018

Erick Hernandez, the 19-year-old Pasadena resident accused of being drunk when he crashed into an SUV, killing a young mother, will will have a curfew, cannot drive and will have an alcohol detecting monitor as conditions of bond, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Hernandez is scheduled to appear in court before Judge Michael McSpadden on Wednesday morning for his initial arraignment on charges of intoxication manslaughter.

Authorities said he was drunk when he got behind the wheel of an F-150 truck that struck a black SUV head-on Sunday night near Hobby Airport, killing 23-year-old Taylor Phillips. Two others in the SUV, Phillips’ 1-year-old son and her 48-year-old mother, were injured.

Hernandez posted $30,000 bail on Tuesday morning. Sean Teare, chief of the Vehicular Crimes Division at the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, outlined the conditions of the bond on Wednesday.
