The driver of Honda Civic sustained non-incapacitating injuries and was transported to a Tyler hospital. The passenger in the Civic, identified as David C. Lewandowski, 51, of Hewitt, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Agustin has since been arrested and booked into the Smith County Jail on charges of possession of a controlled substance, intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault with a vehicle, with bonds totaling at $1.1 million.
