ROSENBERG – We are getting new details about the deadly golf cart accident in Galveston over the weekend that killed two adults and two children from Rosenberg.
The surviving family members are filing a lawsuit and on Wednesday the attorney representing the family spoke to KPRC 2′s Re’Chelle Turner.
Attorney James Amaro says the family is saddened by the tragedy and is asking for privacy.
Amaro says his team has been gathering evidence, speaking to witnesses, and believe the suspect, 45-year-old Miguel Espinoza, was drinking at a bar before the fatal crash.
Police said Felipe Bentancur, 49, and Destiny Uvalle, 25, were two of the adult victims identified in the crash. The minor victims were identified as 14-year-old Brailyn Cantu, and the youngest, 4-year-old Kaisyn Bentancur.
They were killed Saturday night after police say Espinoza ran a stop sign hitting the golf car they were driving.
“Every single one of these lives were cut short, senselessly and tragically,” Amaro said.
Amaro says the family has filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit and a restraining order against the suspect and the Float Pool and Patio Bar in Galveston.
