Twins charged with DWI, accused of crashing into patrol vehicle

HOUSTON – Two deputy constables were injured while working the scene of a deadly crash Saturday. 

The deputies arrived at a crash on Beltway 8 near Galveston Road, where they said a commercial vehicle rear-ended a sedan, killing a 19-year-old woman inside the car. A passenger and a child were taken to area hospitals in unknown condition.

As deputies were blocking off the road, authorities said two suspected drunken drivers rear-ended their patrol vehicle.

Those drivers were identified as twin brothers, James Bramlet and Joseph Bramlet, who were each operating a vehicle, deputies said.

Both deputies were transported to area hospitals with minor injuries

A K-9 officer was also in the patrol vehicle during the accident but was not injured.

The Bramlets were given field sobriety tests and failed, according to deputies. Both were charged with DWI.
