Texan Promise Hamilton Killed By Drunk Driver


Two people on their way to the airport for a trip to France were hit and killed by a suspected drunk driver in Dallas early Sunday morning.

The suspected drunk driver is in critical condition and under arrest for two counts of intoxication manslaughter.

Police say 23-year-old Promise Hamilton and her boyfriend, 26-year-old Luis Solano, were on their way to DFW International Airport when the accident happened.

Police say the suspected drunk driver was speeding when he ran a red light heading northbound on Dallas Parkway, the service road right off the tollway near Frankford Road.

Police say that's when he hit Solano and Hamilton's car, causing it to strike a pole. Both of them were pronounced dead at the scene.

The couple was only about a mile from home and on their way to pick up relatives who would see them off.
