Fatal Two Car Crash in Arlington
The Arlington Police Department is investigating a fatal two-car crash that caused the death of a 10-year-old boy Thursday. It happened at the intersection of Nathan Lowe Road and Petra Drive. A mother and son were traveling in a car south on Petra. They stopped at a four-way stop and then proceeded through the intersection. The driver of an SUV, Walter Tendai Chidyausiku (pictured right) heading west on Nathan Lowe did not stop at the intersection and collided with the car. The mother driving the car was driven by ambulance to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth for treatment of non life-threatening injuries. The child, later identified as Tavian Sabur, was driven by ambulance to Medical Center of Arlington and later flown by CareFlite to Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth. Tavian died from his injuries Friday morning. Chidyausiku wasn’t seriously injured. Officers working the case have indications that alcohol was a factor in the crash. Chidyausiku, 29, of Arlington, was arrested Thursday at the scene of the crash and faces two charges of intoxication assault. His charges could change after the results of blood tests for alcohol level are received and based on the Tavion's death. The crash is the 21st traffic fatality in Arlington in 2011.
Pilot Sentenced to 50 Years
It took a Denton County jury less than an hour to find a corporate pilot guilty of murdering his brother four years ago. Mark Honish, 49, of Trophy Club was sentenced to 50 years in prison Thursday. Prosecutor Cary Piel said he killed his brother, David Honish because he was threatening to expose a secret: that Mark Honish had been convicted in Wisconsin in the 1980s for sexual assault and later for criminal trespass and battery.
