Area woman charged with intoxication manslaughter


UPDATE: On November 25, Alisa Prueitt was sentenced to 18 years in prison after pleading guilty to intoxication manslaughter.

A woman was arrested and charged with intoxication manslaughter, after it was determined she had a blood alcohol level more than 5 times the legal limit during a fatal wreck in August.

Alisa Prueitt has been charged with intoxication manslaughter and 3 counts of intoxication assault for a wreck back on August 24 that killed one and injured three others.

Authorities were called to the intersection of Moccasin Bend Road and Highway 36 in Coryell County. They were dispatched just after 4 p.m. on August 24.

When they arrived on the scene, authorities met with witnesses. According to authorities, Prueitt was driving a silver Dodge Stratus, and swerved off the road and then back across, into oncoming traffic, where she crashed into a silver Nissan SUV.

Samuel Dale Graham was the driver of the SUV and was killed in the crash. One of the passengers in the SUV was seriously injured and two children passengers were also injured.

When an EMS got to Prueitt, he noticed her speech was slurred, and she told the EMS she had not been drinking, but had taken prescription medication. Prueitt was taken to Coryell Memorial Hospital, where authorities spoke with her.

While at the hospital, she admitted to authorities that she drank two beers and had taken two prescription pills. The blood specimen analysis taken from her treatment after the crash showed that she had a blood alcohol level of .42%.

She was booked into the Coryell County Jail on September 13 and the bond has been set at $475,000 for all charges against her.
