Jaime Rodriguez Reyes charged with DWI in accident that killed 4-year old boy

Two men are facing DWI charges after a multi-vehicle accident Sunday night that claimed the life of a 4-year old little boy. The accident happened around 10:00pm in the 8200 block of South Loop East. Investigators say Jamal Green, 38, was driving with his 4-year old son in a Nissan Sentra that was having mechanical issues. The Sentra was either stalled or driving slowly in the northbound lanes of 610 without headlights when a Chevrolet Lumina driven by Jaime Rodriguez Reyes, 42, came from behind and rear-ended the Nissan. Reyes’ Lumina then hit a Chevrolet Tahoe SUV that was driving in the next lane. Jamal Green and his son were both rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital: police say that Green’s injuries were minor, but the little boy’s injuries were fatal. Police believe both Reyes and Jamal Green were intoxicated at the time of the accident. Reyes has been charged with driving while intoxicated. Jamal Green has been charged with driving while intoxicated with a child under age 15 in the vehicle, which is a felony charge. The name of the 4-year old who died in the accident has not yet been released. Channel 11’s story is here. Channel 2’s story is here. Channel 13’s story is here.
