A Bowie man was arrested last week following an indictment by a Clay County grand jury on four charges related to a rollover accident on 4 Wire Road that claimed the life of a Bowie woman.
Cody Guy Reeves, 22, is charged with intoxication manslaughter, a second degree felony, in the death of Jennifer Danielle Hill, 19, a passenger in the vehicle. Reeves is charged with three counts of intoxication assault, third degree felony, due to injuries received by three other passengers, Elizabeth Willis, 18, of Bowie; Nicholas Thresher, 21, of Galveston; and Fernando Segura, 20, of Waco.
At 1:43 a.m. Jan. 12, Reeves and the four passengers were traveling north on the southeast Clay County road when the driver lost control of the vehicle, a 2005 Chevrolet pickup, striking a boulder and an embankment. The vehicle rolled over, ejecting Reeves.
Hill was transported by helicopter to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, where she later died. Willis, Thresher and Segura were transported to area hospitals with serious injuries.
According to comments made by Jennifer Thresher, mother of Nicholas Thresher, he suffered three fractured vertebrae and a broken collar bone, while Willis suffered a broken neck and skull fracture. The extent of injuries suffered by Segura are not known. According to previous reports, Reeves was not seriously injured.
It was the second fatality accident on 4 Wire Road in less than five months.
The indictments, handed down April 21, were sealed until Reeves was arrested. Reeves was released April 24 on $10,000 bond for the intoxication manslaughter charge, and $5,000 bond for each of the three intoxication assault charges.
