GALVESTON – A suspect is in custody after reportedly hitting and killing a man while the man was operating a scooter in Galveston on Sunday, according to police.

Yordany Ferrer, 35, has been charged with intoxication manslaughter. Police said his bond was denied.

According to investigators, the crash occurred in the 5300 block of Avenue U around 7:10 p.m.

Galveston police said the man was stopped at a stop sign headed westbound on the road when Ferrer was traveling northbound in a blue Nissan Altima and ran the stop sign, striking the scooter.

The victim was said to have been ejected from the scooter, landing on the windshield of a gray Silverado which was stopped at the stop sign, headed southbound.

Galveston Fire Department and GEMS took the 49-year-old victim to the hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Additionally, the 88-year-old driver of the Silverado was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries following the crash.

Officials said they are awaiting notification to the victim’s next of kin before releasing his identity.
