Teen charged in fatality after man dies in crash

An 18-year-old was arrested and charged with criminally negligent homicide after a fatal wreck in Lakeway on Saturday left another man dead. The charge is a state jail felony, which carries a maximum penalty of  two years if he is convicted.

Siji Alfredo Moreno was driving a Chevy pickup South on RM 620 about 8:30 a.m. when, witnesses told Lakeway police, Moreno’s pickup drifted across the center turn lane and into the northbound lane, according to an affidavit. Moreno’s truck struck a four-door Toyota Corolla that John Gregory was riding in, the affidavit said.

Gregory and his wife Carolyn, who was driving, were  flown to University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin; Moreno was taken in an ambulance, the affidavit says. John Gregory died from his injuries later that day. Carolyn Gregory was in intensive care Tuesday night. A passenger in the truck did not suffer serious injuries, the affidavit said.

Moreno was in the Travis County. Jail with bail set at $250,000. Lakeway police said the investigation into the wreck is ongoing.

What Our Clients Say

Last year I was driving on interstate 35 up in Oklahoma and was hit by a pickup on the side of the road. I was referred to the Traub Law Firm and they did a great job on this accident case. It was not easy because the accident was out of state and we had to get numerous records from hospitals and other outlets. The law firm did a great job to go the extra mile for me. I would highly recommend The Traub Law Firm for any accident claim you might have.
