A man is now locked up, charged with intoxication manslaughter after a crash that killed a 14-year-old girl from Katy. State troopers say a driver stopped on Highway 288 near FM 523 Friday in Brazoria County to get some snacks out of the trunk. That's when a truck troopers say was driven by Jeffery Thomas slammed into the back of the car. The 14-year-old, Nicole King, was killed. Two other children and two adults were injured.

Troopers say Thomas was arrested after doing badly on sobriety tests.
