Good Samaritan recalls alleged DWI wreck that killed Splendora parents

SPLENDORA, TX (KTRK) -- The man who police say tackled a DWI suspect and kept him from leaving the scene of a wreck that killed two young parents in Splendora is speaking out to ABC-13.

Sunday's crash still has this community riddled with grief. They're thankful for one man, and his bold and brave effort to catch a suspected drunk driver who tried to make a run for it.

"I'm absolutely devastated," 22-year-old Sean Allison said.

He's still visibly emotional after Sunday's fatal crash.

"I'm extremely angry. There's really no other words," he said.

He wasn't able to save Shea and Brad Fraizer's life on Sunday, but he did catch the guy who's suspected of taking killing them.

"It's crazy that I was there at that time," Allison said.

On Wednesday, he took us back to that road, where he says he saw a man - now identified as 23-year-old Alejandro Guzman Lopez - darting across the railroad tracks, running away from the crash site.

"All I knew was that it was a wreck," he said.

Allison said he saw people pointing at the man so he followed Lopez into this parking lot.

"I caught up to him right here, about 100 yards in the car," he said.

Allison said he sprinted towards Lopez and tackled him.

"As soon as I got close, I just leaped for him; I put my arm around his neck and put them in a headlock and swung them to the ground," Allison said.

Allison said Lopez reeked of alcohol and was yelling and screaming.

"He kept yelling at me, 'Get off me, get off me! I'm not going to jail.'"

With his cell phone still in his car, Allison kept Lopez down for six long minutes before police found him, waving his hand at them.

"I was pretty relieved that they were there," Allison said.

It was then Allison found out how bad the crash really was and the survivors in that car - one just a few weeks old - were now without their parents.

"I feel so bad for the babies and extremely bad for the family," Allison said.

But he says at least now they can have a chance at justice, something he's dreamed of being able to give families.

"I want to be in law enforcement. That's my dream," Allison said.

Allison said he has been in contact with the Fraizer family. He hopes to meet them soon. null
