Cassandra Jimenez - a Victim of Impaired Driving in Baytown, Texas

Cassandra Jimenez
Cassandra Jimenez, age 20, died on September 3, 2016, at a hospital in Houston, Texas.

In the early morning hours, Cassandra was driving with her fiancé in Baytown, which is part of the metropolitan area of Houston.

A pickup truck crashed into the vehicle Cassandra was in.

She was rushed to a local hospital where, tragically, she was pronounced deceased.

Raul Tadeo, age 23, was the driver of the pickup truck. He tried to run away from the scene of the crash. However, bystanders held him until the Police arrived. He had to be tased to get him under control.

It is expected that he will be charged with driving while intoxicated, resisting arrest and failure to stop.

Raul Tadeo has a prior criminal record. He was in jail a few days before this tragic accident.  However, he is innocent unless proven guilty.

We offer this advice to all drivers: If you find that you are drunk, wasted or
Gabriel, who stands in the presence
of God, pray for Cassandra and
for those who have lost her. 
doped up on street drugs or prescription drugs or if you are falling asleep on your feet, do NOT drive. Call a family member or a friend for a ride; or take a taxi or a bus; or stay where you are until you sober up; or crawl home on your hands and knees. It will be better for you and for the world if you do.

Regret can last a lifetime.

A funding site has been set up to help Cassandra's family with expenses.

Cassandra's loved ones are devastated over her sudden and tragic death. She wanted to be a veterinarian. She had plans to attend school. She was a helpful and happy young woman with a kind spirit. She did her best. She will be forever mourned.

Cassandra is survived by many loving friends and family members who will forever miss her.

Pray for justice for Cassandra.

Pray for all who die young. They barely had a chance to live.

God save us from the drunk and the doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father. Amen.

Pray that Cassandra is in Heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
