Man’s Boyfriend Witnesses His Death on Highway

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) July 7, 2016 – It was yet another drunk driving accident that took the life of Dickinson resident 43-year-old Troy McNeil on Bay Area Boulevard.

Mr. McNeil and his long-time partner were heading south on the Gulf Freeway. Their vehicle, a Dodge Durango, was sideswiped and whipped out onto the highway. McNeil and his partner were hit by another vehicle.

Both McNeil and his partner were alive and not badly hurt at that point. However, when McNeil climbed out of the Durango to check on the damage, a Toyota Camry driven by Saul Arrendondo hit him. Arrendondo was subsequently charged with DWI. Police indicated that there would be further charges laid once the investigation of the accident was complete.

McNeil’s partner, J.R. Guajardo witnessed his death.

“This accident was extremely shocking for everyone involved, but more so for Mr. Guarjardo. It’s devastating to watch someone you love die right in front of you,” said wrongful death and plaintiff’s DWI attorney Bobby Lee. Lee is a lawyer at Lee, Gober & Reyna law firm in Austin.

Lee, Gober & Reyna are plaintiff’s attorneys in actions that involve DWI and other personal injury cases. “We have handled many DWI cases and have the kind of experience you would need to seek compensation for your injuries and a fair and equitable award,” Lee added.
Texas has an unenviable reputation for being one of the worst states in the U.S. for drunk driving deaths and i

njuries. In fact, 13,138 people were killed in drunk driving crashes between 2003 and 2012. “Considering that drinking and driving is a choice, it’s frightening to think how careless, reckless and thoughtless those who drive while under the influence are when the other choice is to not drink and drive and still be alive.”
