GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — The driver of a car that slammed into two people on Galveston’s Seawall Boulevard, killing them and their dog, has been charged with intoxication manslaughter.

Matthew Green Shelton and a passenger in his car remain in stable condition at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston after the accident. Police Lt. Michael Gray says bond has been set at $100,000, and the 27-year-old suspect will be booked into Galveston County Jail after he’s discharged from the hospital.

Gray says 42-year-old Steven Louis Hunt of Galveston and an acquaintance were walking a dog on the Seawall when they were hit about 6:15 p.m. Wednesday. Witnesses say the car veered out of control into the pedestrians.

The second victim’s identity was being withheld Thursday until his family could be notified.
