    DNA Clears Man in Crash That Injured 2 Houston Officers
    NBC10

    Prosecutors say DNA evidence has cleared a man who had been accused of driving drunk and injuring two Houston police officers during a fiery crash.

    Cesar Collazo faced four felonies, including two counts of intoxication assault with serious bodily injury on a public servant, following the Christmas Eve 2018 crash that injured officers John Daily and Alonzo Reid.

    But according to court documents, prosecutors dismissed the charges last month.

    DNA evidence from the driver side air bag and testimony from another passenger pointed to Leonel Moreno as the driver of the vehicle that hit the officers' SUV.

    Moreno has been charged with two counts of failure to stop and render aid. He's not been arrested.

    Daily, who suffered severe burns, remains hospitalized but is expected to be released this week.
