Child on bike killed by suspected drunken driver

A driver police believe was driving drunk hit and killed an 8-year-old boy in southeast Houston. Euaristo Hinojosa-Pena was speeding on Lenore and Arizona at around 10pm on Sunday, when he clipped a boy riding a bike. The boy’s identity has not been released, but he was visiting his grandmother, which he does often. The boy was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Euaristo waited until the cops arrived, and admitted to having two beers before driving. However, he failed a field sobriety test. Officials are waiting to for the result of the blood alcohol analysis. If the results show he was over the legal blood alcohol level, he could face intoxication manslaughter charges.
