Son of victim speaks about deadly Metro bus stop wreck

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- All three people hit by a car at a southwest Houston bus stop Saturday night are related, according to family.

Kamal Subedi said his mother, 56-year-old Indra Subedi, died after undergoing surgery Monday. His father and uncle are still in the hospital.

"I'm so sad," Kamal Subedi said through tears, "I was at work when she was in the accident. She came here one month ago to visit me, but I lost my mom."

Subedi said his mother moved to Houston from Belize one month ago. It was his dream to come to America and make enough money to bring his mother along.

"She was kind," Subedi said, "And she loved me."

According to investigators, the driver of the car that hit the family is 38-year-old Obdulio Vasquez. They said he was racing a truck, weaving in and out of traffic when he lost control of the wheel and slammed into the family at the bus stop. A good Samaritan came to the family's aid.

Investigators said Vasquez initially ran from police, but he was caught hiding nearby.

Vasquez is facing two counts of intoxication assault with a vehicle, one count of intoxication manslaughter and one count of accident involving death.
