      Troopers move to suspend driver's license in fatal DWI wreck

      Reynaldo Alaniz

      State troopers have moved to suspend the driver's licnese of a man who is accused of causing a fatal DWI wreck near Los Fresnos.

      Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) state troopers arrested 36-year-old Reynaldo Alaniz early Saturday morning.

      He's charged with the death of 14-year-old Alondra Garcia from Pharr.

      The girl died during a three-car wreck off Highway 100 just outside of Los Fresnos.

      Others were injured in the accident.

      Records released on Tuesday show that state troopers found Alaniz in the grass along the highway.

      The state trooper who arrested Alaniz wrote that the 36-year-old construction worker had a strong odor of alcohol and was very disoriented.

      "Alaniz was not aware of how he landed in the grassy area north of SH 100," the trooper wrote in a probable cause affidavit.

      The records show that Alaniz provided a blood sample.

      The results were not immediately available but court records show that state trooper moved to suspend Alaniz's driver's license.
