Police arrested a 21-year-old student from Texas State University after being involved in a car accident that caused the death of one man and left his 5-months-pregnant wife in critical condition. San Antonio car accident information from the authorities shows the unborn child has a high probably of succumbing to grievous injuries caused by the accident.

Shana Elliot had just come from a river float, and was still wearing her bikini while driving down Highway 21 at 6:00 p.m. on August 2. Elliott told police who reported to scene that she had had “beer and liquor” while floating the river at Texas State Tubes just before the accident. She was subsequently arrested and charged with 2 counts of intoxication manslaughter and an intoxication assault charge, which are second and third degree felonies respectively.

Kristian Guerrero, age 24, was behind the wheel of a Toyota Corolla on the opposite highway, with her husband, Fabian Guerrero-Moreno, in the passenger seat. Elliot was found to have swerved into their lane, crashing into the Corolla. The impact killed Guerrero-Moreno at the scene of the accident, while his wife was transported immediately to St. David’s South Austin Medical Center, where she remains in critical condition.

Elliott has a history of arrests in Hays County for drug possession.
