Driver Allegedly On PCP Kills Two In Houston, Texas

Posted on by Paul Cannon

In the early morning hours of October 15, 2012, Meagan Jones and Ricardo Quinton had just filled up at the Shell gas station on the I-59 feeder and Kirby Drive. They pulled to the exit and were waiting for traffic to allow them to go when all of a sudden, a vehicle driven by Theodore Adolphus Hargrove left the roadway at a high rate of speed and slammed into the side of the vehicle. Meagan Jones and Ricardo Quinton died at the scene.

Charges filed indicate that Hargrove (age 33) was driving under the influence of PCP at the time of the wreck.  PCP is a hallucinogenic mushroom and a controlled substance.  He has been charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter as a result of this incident.  Driving under the influence is a lesser-included offense for which he could also be convicted if not found guilty of the manslaughter charges. His prior criminal records include a previous drug possession charge and a charge for resisting/evading arrest.

If you or a family member are injured and suspect it is the result of a driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you should speak to a car accident lawyer about your rights.  Simmons and Fletcher handle all types of car accidents.
