SEAGRAVES, TX (KCBD) -

Ramon Aguilar of Seagraves, one of the drivers in a two-vehicle accident that killed five people north of Seagraves on Sunday morning, has been charged with Intoxication Assault, Intoxication Manslaughter and Felony Failure to Stop and Render Aid.

Authorities say Aguilar, 24, left the scene of the crash and was later located by tracking dogs from the Brownfield Jim Rudd unit in the sleeper berth of a truck tractor on 319 CR 692 at 10:11 a.m. 

Troopers say the white Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by Aguilar was traveling south behind a brown GMC extended cab pickup. The Dodge ran into the rear of the GMC causing both units to run off the road and overturn in the west ditch.

Four of the five occupants in the GMC were ejected. The front right passenger of the GMC, Romulo Molina, 39, of Sherman was the only occupant who was wearing a seatbelt and not ejected.

All five occupants of the GMC, Luis Valenzuela, 26, of Sherman, Romulo Molina, David Dominguez-Juarez of Mexico, Isabel Garcia-De La Cerda, 35, of Sherman and Juan Carlos Enriquez Mendoza, 31, of Mexico were killed during the crash.

They were all transported to the South Plains Forensics for identification.

The front passenger in the Dodge was ejected during the crash and was airlifted to the University Medical Center in Lubbock by Aerocare. He was not wearing his seatbelt during the crash and sustained severe injuries.

It is unknown if Aguilar was wearing his seatbelt during the crash, but he was not ejected.

Bond for the three charges will be more than $2 million. 

The Intoxication Manslaughter bond is $1.5 million. The Intoxication Assault bond is $50,000, and Felony Failure to Stop and Render Aid carries a $500,000 bond.
