Driver given 60 years in prison for running over 8 in front of migrant shelter in Texas

Brownsville, Texas — A jury of Texas found a driver guilty of manslaughter in the deaths of eight people, who were run over by a van that crashed into a crowded bus stop in front of a migrant shelter on the southern border of the United States.

George Alvarez, 35, was found guilty Friday of eight counts of intoxication manslaughter at the end of a weeklong trial, Cameron County Prosecutor Edward Sandoval said. He was also found guilty of 10 counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

A Cameron County jury sentenced Alvarez to 20 years in prison on each count of intoxication manslaughter. A judge later ruled that Alvarez would spend a total of 60 years in prison.

The jury returned the verdict more than a year after authorities said Alvarez lost control of the vehicle after running a red light. The deadly scene occurred in Brownsville, which has long been an epicenter for migrant arrivals.
