Last night, 47 year old James Paul Hall, was arrested for Intoxication Assault stemming from a traffic crash where two people were injured and transported to Shannon Medical Center.

Yesterday, February 11, 2016, at approximately 8:30 pm, San Angelo Police responded to a motor vehicle crash in the 2800 block of N Chadbourne. A white 2000 Dodge Ram, operated by 47 year old James Hall, was northbound on Chadbourne and a white 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, operated by 18 year old Jesikah Dominguez, was southbound on Chadbourne. Hall attempted to make a left turn into a private business in the 2800 block of Chadbourne and the vehicles collided.

After the initial collision, Hall's vehicle continued into the parking lot of the private business where it collided with an unoccupied white 2011 Mini Cooper. Hall's vehicle then collided with a post of the awning on the front of the business. The post hit the building causing damage to the building.

San Angelo Police arrived on scene and made contact with Hall and Dominguez. Hall showed signs of intoxication. Dominguez was transported to Shannon Medical Center for her injuries sustained during the crash. Nineteen year old Jose Garcia, a passenger with Dominguez, was also transported to Shannon Medical Center with incapacitating injuries.

Due to the nature of the injuries and Hall showing signs of intoxication, Sgt Todd Dornhecker and Officer Brian Bylsma with the Traffic Division and Detective Adrian Castro responded to the scene to conduct an investigation.

At the conclusion of the investigation, it was determined Hall failed to yield the right of way to Dominguez while making a left turn. Due to Hall being intoxicated and being involved in a traffic crash where serious injury occurred, Hall was placed under arrest and transported to the Tom Green County Jail where he was charged with Intoxication Assault with a Vehicle.
