Man accused of felony theft of $1.2 million worth of fajitas

Fajitas are a popular food in Texas, but it is hard to imagine a state worker trying to steal $1.2 million worth of them from Cameron County over a multi-year period. Authorities recently fired a juvenile justice department employee and accused him of stealing all those fajitas and getting away with it for nine years. The police have arrested the man for felony theft after getting a search warrant and finding packages of the food contraband in his refrigerator.

Dead woman's ex-husband facing felony charge of murder

The arrival of Hurricane Harvey in Texas was associated with a few criminal charges that seemed eerily tied to the massive storm's wind and rain-making violence. In one case, a woman disappeared on the day that Harvey hit the mainland, and she did not reappear until her corpse was found two weeks later in a marshy woodland in Baytown. Authorities have charged her ex-husband with the felony of killing her, allegedly in a rage of domestic violence initiated by his need to control his ex-wife.  

Negligent driver jumps gate, injures 5 children at daycare center

Some accidents are so unintentional that it is difficult to place moral blame on the party who caused the mishap. That is probably the case in a recent tragedy that occurred when a 17-year-old male who was learning how to drive crashed a gate to a Texas daycare center, injuring five children and one adult who were outside the building. The negligent driver reportedly hit the accelerator instead of the brake pedal, sending the car into an uncontrolled plunge onto the private property.

Car accidents account for nearly 40,000 fatalities per year

Every year there are nearly 40,000 deaths from auto accidents in the country, according to the statistics kept by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Broken down by state, the agency's statistics show that Texas led the country in 2015 with 3,516 fatalities. However, given the large population of the state, its proportional contribution to traffic fatalities in car accidents was not that close to the top.
