The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and TXDOT want to remind you that Spring Break is a dangerous and deadly time on Texas roadways with more than 30 fatalities resulting from impaired driving in each of the past two years.  In an effort to curb this deadly trend, the Texas Department of Transportation launches its statewide “DWI Hangovers Don’t Go Away” campaign reminding young adults and college students about the dangers and long-term consequences of drinking.

“Many of these young people are under 21 and it is against the law for them to drink alcohol,” said TXDOT Executive Director Lt. Gen Joe Weber, USMC (Ret). “Every deadly crash is a tragedy, but it’s especially difficult when the promising future of a young person is suddenly cut short.  We ask parents to talk to their kids about the deadly consequences of drinking and driving. Don’t let your child be a Spring Break statistic.”

El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles wants to reiterate this reality by reminding College and High School students that Law Enforcement will be out looking for Drunk Drivers.  El Paso County is a no refusal county and the District Attorney’s Office will draw your blood as evidence of a suspected DWI!  Be smart and use a designated driver, NEVER get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.

In 2014, there were 24,175 impaired-driving traffic crashes in Texas that resulted in 2,292 serious injuries and 969 deaths.  Of those crashes, 54 percent involved drivers under the influence of alcohol in the age group of 17-34.

El Paso, Texas – On 03-03-15 at about 1205 hrs, El Paso County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 3700 block of Desert Meadows in reference to multiple subjects bitten by a vicious animal. Upon arrival, Deputies met with a (18) year-old mother victim, who said three family dogs got loose from the fenced-in property were in the street. Sheriff’s Deputies said the 18 year old mother attempted to retrieve the animals, while holding her 11-month old baby daughter. Deputies said that a brown pit-bull attacked and bit the 11-month-old victim on the leg causing her to fall out of her mother’s arms and onto the ground. While on the ground the 11-month old victim was bitten again in the neck and head area by the pit-bull causing injuries as she was being picked up off the ground. A concerned neighbor witnessed the attack and ran over to help the mother and her baby by throwing items at the dogs. The neighbor was then attacked by the pit-bull and sustained minor injuries while helping. The pit-bull eventually ran back onto the property where El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control officers were able to detain and quarantine. The 11-month old victim was transported to University Medical Center for medical treatment of her injuries. The neighbor refused medical treatment. Deputies conducted a follow-up and reported the 11-month old victim required 10 stitches on her head; there is no loss of limb or toe. The Baby girl is fine and alert.
