HOUSTON — A Texas man is facing charges in relation to a deadly crash that happened moments after he broadcast a Facebook Live video saying he drives better when he drinks.
During the video, police said, Camilo Morejon, 47, was seen drinking what looked like a beer, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The crash happened 10 minutes after the video was posted.
Morejon was at the wheel of his Honda Accord, driving “at a high rate of speed" in Houston, police said.
The crash was recorded by a security camera, KPRC reported.
The three passengers in Morejon’s Accord were pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said Morejon was intoxicated when the crash happened and that they found open alcoholic beverage containers in the car.
Morejon was charged with three counts of intoxicated manslaughter, NBC News reported.
He also faces a count of intoxication assault, KPRC reported.
He could face upgraded charges if the truck’s driver dies.
