She showed no signs of intoxication at the time, deputies report. They now think that slippery roads caused the truck to swerve due to a rain shower.

Lieutenant Simon Cheng, who works in HCSO’s Vehicle Crime Unit, said he did not immediately see a possible reason to support the charges against the driver of the cement truck.

Meanwhile, the Resendiz family is now reeling from the devastating loss and have raised more than $4,700 for Nicholas’s funeral expenses in an online fundraiser.

Witnesses at the scene said they saw the truck swerve to dodge another car on the Houston Parkway before crashing at the intersection of Woodforest Boulevard and Beltway 8.

Raymond Romo, who works nearby, told Click 2 Houston how the truck dangled from the overpass as the cars underneath tried to get out of the way.

But eventually, he said, the truck tipped over and landed on the Resendiz’s family vehicle.

“We saw it when we landed on the vehicle in the middle of the parking lot,” Romo recalled. “Immediately we sprang into action with my friend Joe.”

He said he was able to pull the driver’s daughter out of the car before turning his attention to the twin toddlers in the back.

“Luckily I was able to get out,” Romo said. “But I couldn’t get out of the other one.”

Romo also said the driver, the boy’s grandmother, became hysterical at the scene.

“They saw it fall, and the grandmother… she froze a little bit and she just stopped,” he said. “That’s why it ended up in the back of the vehicle when she stopped.”

Those who survived were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, and the driver of the truck is also believed to have suffered minor injuries, but refused medical attention at the scene.
