EL PASO - The man accused of killing two teenagers while driving drunk in Northeast El Paso has bonded out of jail.
Police charged 32-year old Hector Tellez with two counts of intoxicated manslaughter. He posted a 100,000 dollar bond last night. Police say he was drunk when he slammed his pickup into a group of teens on Loop 375 late Friday night.
Investigators say 17-year old Mark Dobbs was having car trouble and pulled over to the side of the road. His band mates, 16-year-olds John Cervoni and Aaron Carrillo stopped to help him.
That's when Tellez veered off the road in his Toyota Tundra pickup and slammed into the group of teens. Carrillo died at the scene. Cervoni died at the hospital. Dobbs has been released from the hospital and is expected to be okay.
Tellez was transported to William Beaumont Army Medical Center, where he was arrested yesterday after being released.
