HOUSTON – Court documents revealed the 32-year-old woman who fatally struck a man in Montrose had a blood alcohol limit nearly four times the legal limit of .08%.

Authorities said, at the time of the crash, the driver -- identified in court documents as Kristina Chambers, of Houston -- was likely traveling 100 mph in a 35 mph zone. She is now charged with felony intoxication manslaughter. Chambers was released from the hospital and booked into jail on Monday, April 24.

Documents also identified, for the first time, the man who was struck and killed as Joseph McMullin.

The crash happened last Wednesday in the 1200 block of Westheimer at around 2:25 a.m.

Police said a couple was on their first date and was leaving the Voodoo Doughnut shop when a blue Porsche 911 Carrera, which was traveling westbound at a high rate of speed, lost control and jumped the curb onto the sidewalk, striking McMullin, and knocking him a distance away. The vehicle then hit a pole, police said.

Briana Iturrino, who was on a date with McMullin, said she has a lot to process after the tragedy. The two went to karaoke and were leaving the doughnut shop when she saw the headlights.

“I saw a car coming and I could tell it was moving really fast. I knew she wouldn’t make the curve,” she said. “He was so sweet, and he smiled throughout the entire date. He didn’t deserve to go like that, he didn’t deserve to go now at all.”

Investigators said Chambers, another woman and a man were inside the vehicle. All three were transported by ambulance to the hospital and it was later determined that Chambers had been drinking.
