HOUSTON, TX – Celebration ends in tragedy.

It all happened Sunday night at Beechnut and Synott, when Harris County Sheriffs say the driver of a ‘Champion Towncar’ company van ran a red light, and T-boned a black Honda Civic killing four people who were heading home from a graduation party. All who were between 60 and 80 years of age.

A fifth passenger was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.

Cops arrested the driver of the van, Million Zeghergis, after he failed a sobriety test. He’s been charged with four counts of intoxication manslaughter. The company that owns the van he was driving declined to comment.

Sadly, for the families of the victims, they’ll need a lot more explanation than that.
