Date: Tuesday, September 22, 2015, 19:33
Location: State Highway 181 at Belden (Harbor Bridge)
Offense: Intoxicated Manslaughter
Case Number: 1509220149
A man who has been hospitalized since he was involved in a fatal crash on the Harbor Bridge is now in jail.

Corpus Christi Police transported the man, Lionel Guerra (04/11/1968), to the City Detention Center just before 4 PM yesterday after he was released from Spohn Memorial Hospital. He had been getting treatment, under police guard, at the hospital for injuries he sustained in the crash since September 22.

Below is the original post from that crash.

A woman died in a head on collision on the Harbor Bridge Tuesday night.

Corpus Christi Police responded to a vehicle crash on the southbound lanes of the Harbor Bridge at 7:30pm Tuesday night. Officers learned a Chevy Silverado pickup entered the Harbor Bridge in the wrong direction to travel north in the southbound lanes. Officers learned the truck was involved in a head on crash with a Nissan Xterra on the overpass over Belden Street. Officers believe a white Toyota Corolla was also somehow involved in the crash. The woman who operated the Nissan Xterra and the 48-year-old man who operated the Silverado were taken to the hospital for treatment for their injuries. The woman did not survive her injuries and the 48-year-old man is believed to have non-life threatening injuries. Officers believe the 29-year-old man who operated the Corolla suffered minor injuries.

Officers uncovered information that leads them to believe that the 48-year-old man who operated the Silverado had consumed alcohol and an investigation began to determine if the 48-year-old man was intoxicated. The 48-year-old man was admitted to the hospital for treatment. If Officers believe that it is more likely than not that the 48-year-old man was intoxicated, then the 48-year-old man will be accused of intoxicated manslaughter.
