Jurors listened to an hour of testimony Monday afternoon in a trial that could send a Lubbock man to prison for more than 36 years.
Police believe it was a case of road rage. Former Texas Tech Baseball player Chaz Eiguren is charged with three counts of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, aggravated assault, endangering a child and two charges of injury to a child.
The charges stem from a deadly traffic crash on the Slaton Highway in April 2003. Police say Eiguren and Veronica Flores were weaving back and forth cutting each other off for several miles before the crash. Flores and her two daughters were killed. Testimony will continue Tuesday.
Triple Fatality Could be Result of Road Rage
The other wreck occurred Sunday night, killing a Lubbock mother and two of her children. It happened off of Highway 84, and now Slaton Police are investigating the accident as a possible case of road rage.
