Jury Acquits Texas Dad Accused Of Killing Driver Who Killed Sons
The Texas father who was accused of killing an alleged drunk driver was acquitted this week.
In 2012, 32-year-old David Barajas lost his two sons after a car fatally struck them on a rural road in Alvin, Texas. The boys were helping to push the family’s truck which had run out of gas when the car struck them. They were only 50 yards from their home. Barajas’ sons, 12-year-old David Jr. and 11-year-old Caleb, died.
20-year-old Jose Banda was behind the wheel of the vehicle that struck the boys and was allegedly intoxicated. Banda was also found dead at the scene, but from a gunshot wound. Grieving father, Barajas was charged with murdering Banda minutes after the accident.
