It was a violent five-vehicle collision that ended in the death of a Texas Tech student. On Monday, the man who Lubbock police say caused that drunken crash is expected to head to trial.

21-year-old Jason Chad White is charged with intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault.

He'll stand trial in the death of 19-year-old Meagan Rough.

Police say White, who was a 19-year-old Tech student at the time, was drunk and speeding when he smashed into the back of the car Rough was riding in.

The force of the impact ejected Rough from the car, even though she was wearing a seat belt.

Two other people were seriously injured.

The collision happened in December of 2012 on Glenna Goodacre Blvd.

White was released on bond, but has been back behind bars since January after testing positive for drugs.

A judge revoked his parole saying White broke the conditions of his bond.

Intoxication manslaughter is a second-degree felony. If convicted White faces two to 20 years in prison.
