Two Robstown men were injured Sunday when a car driven by a 28-year-old man veered off the roadway and into the pair as they stood outside a vacant building.
According to a report from the Robstown Police Department, a 2008 Chevrolet Impala driven by Antonio Cavazos was traveling on Flores Street when the vehicle veered off into the parking lot of Polanco's Bakery. The car went through the parking area and into a vacant lot on the corner of Western Avenue and Flores.
The vehicle struck two men who were standing outside a structure located on the lot before crashing into the building itself, according to the report. The men were identified as 48-year-old Alfredo Martinez and 77-year-old Federico Martinez, both of Robstown.
The pair were treated by Emergency Medical Services personnel at the scene and transported to a local hospital. Their conditions were not known as of press time.
Cavazos, who was found to be intoxicated by police, was checked out by medical personnel for any injuries.
He was released into police custody afterward, then transported to the Nueces County Jail to face charges of intoxication assault and unlawful carrying of a weapon, as police discovered a Smith and Wesson revolver in the suspect's vehicle.
Additional charges may be forthcoming, police said on Tuesday, as the investigation is ongoing.
