Emil McMahon Intoxication Manslaughter Charge


32-year-old Emil McMahon, from Crosby Texas, was charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter, on Wednesday, in the death of Tania & A.J. Vercher. 27-year-old Tania and her 2-year-old son A.J., died when a vehicle driven by McMahon crashed into them on September 29th 2013. The wreck happened on FM-1942 near Garth Road. According to police reports, Emil McMahon was speeding and driving unsafely while trying to catch up to his wife - who was trying to avoid him while driving another vehicle. Tania Vercher died at the scene, while her son A.J. passed away at the hospital the next day. The crash occurred near a Crosby bar, Bob N Jeans, where customers rushed to help them after hearing the collision inside. The bar also had a surveillance system, which recorded the wreck and aftermath. Emil McMahon was injured and treated at a hospital, before being charged with intoxication manslaughter this week. A blood sample was taken from McMahon shortly after the crash, which allegedly indicted that he was under the influence of a controlled substance. No trial date as been set at this time.
