29-year-old Brett Walrath was hit on the access road of loop 289 between Indiana and Quaker Avenues last Wednesday. The alleged drunk driver of a Lexus struck him the first time and a short time later, the driver of a Jeep swerved to avoid a small crowd that had gathered near Walrath, hitting him a second time.
62-year-old Callie Long was charged with Intoxication Assault and is currently free on bond. The driver of the Jeep was not charged.
Walrath, a Texas Tech Graduate, is a former legal assistant to Criminal District Attorney Bill Sowder. He and his wife are expecting their first child this December.
