A Thorndale man is now charged with a felony, for a Williamson County crash that killed two people on the morning of New Year's Eve.

Aurelio Martinez, 25, is charged with intoxication manslaughter.

According to court documents, Martinez was driving some friends to Taylor when he was involved in a crash with a Prius.

The driver of the Prius, 64-year-old Donna Stauffer, was killed in the crash. One of Martinez's passengers, 25-year-old Jose Rodriguez, also died.

The documents say Martinez told police he had three drinks throughout the night in Austin. Police took a blood sample, but a breath test recorded his blood alcohol content as .036.
