A Cameron County Grand Jury indicted McAllen resident Margaret Gil today on five counts of intoxication manslaughter committed on June 30, 2013.
Authorities with the Cameron County District Attorney’s Office alleges that Gil, 32, was intoxicated when the car she was driving struck another car on Hwy 100 near Los Fresnos, killing its four passengers from McAllen–-Edward Gomez, 32; Erika Olaya Davila, 30; Jolexy Alvarez, 13; and Kamilla Isabel Gomez, 3.
Also killed was Gil’s passenger Carmela Sanchez, 43, of Santa Rosa.
While driving her 2006 Toyota RAV 4 westbound on Hwy 100, Gil crossed the clearly-marked median lines and struck the 2013 Toyota Corolla head-on, a DA’s press release read.
Gil remains jailed in Cameron County.
