Mike Grayson charged in deadly accident with horse drawn carriage

Mike Grayson of Conroe, Texas has been charged with intoxication manslaughter and three counts of intoxication assault in connection with a crash at the intersection of 21st Street and Avenue L in Galveston. At around 11:00 p.m. Saturday July 21st Grayson’s black sedan struck a horse-drawn carriage, killing one person and injuring four others. Police say 21-year old Grayson attempted to flee the accident scene but was kept there by witnesses until the police arrived. At the time of the accident Grayson told police that he had been on medication: he failed a sobriety test and later admitted he had been drinking. Four people in the carriage were transported to the hospital where one victim died. One witness said the carriage rolled over three times, finally coming to rest on top of Grayson’s car. Grayson’s bond has been set at $250,000. Channel 2’s story is here. Channel 13’s story is here. Galveston Daily News’ story is here.
