    Enrique Jaime Vazquez (47) & his dog were killed by a 12 year old girl who was practicing driving with her dad

    https://heavy.com/news/2019/08/tomas-mejia-tol/

    A Texas man?s decision to give his 12-year-old daughter a driving lesson had deadly consequences after she accidentally struck and killed a neighbor and his dog. Tomas Mejia Tol, 42, was charged with criminal negligent homicide and endangering a child after his daughter hit a neighbor who was out walking his dogs.

    Univision reported bail was set at $1,000 for each charge. No charges have been pressed against the girl, who is has not been named because she is a minor. She is currently at home with her family.

    ?You can?t allow a young child to drive in a populated place,? Sean Teare, chief of the Harris County District Attorney?s Office Vehicular Crimes Division said. ?If you?re going to teach a young person how to drive, go to an empty parking lot. Go somewhere where you?re not going to have the potential for taking someone?s life.?

    ?Every time you turn the wheel, or you turn the key on a car, you are strapping on a deadly weapon,? he added.

    The incident occurred around 4:25 p.m. on August 15. Tol and his daughter were in the parking lot of their southwest Houston apartment complex in the 6000 block of Beverly Hill Street when he allowed the girl to practice driving his black Ford Explorer. It is unknown if he was in the vehicle with her at the time of the accident.

    According to a City of Houston news release, the girl was pulling forward from the parking space when she applied too much pressure on the gas, accelerated, and hit a 46-year-old man, one of his three dogs and a tree. Neighbors identified the victim to ABC 13 as Enrique Jaime Vazquez, 47. Paramedics pronounced both the man and his dog dead at the scene.

    A 12-year-old girl hit a man and his dog with an SUV in Houston, killing them instantly, police said. Her father has been arrested and charged with criminal negligent homicide and endangering a child.

    Tomas Mejia Tol's daughter was driving the Ford Explorer around an apartment complex Thursday evening, police said in a statement. At the time, a 2-year-old was in the backseat of the vehicle, according to CNN affiliate KTRK-TV.

    "The child (driver) began to pull forward from a parking space as a man was walking with his dogs through the parking lot," police said. "When the child pressed the accelerator pedal, the Ford moved forward at a high rate of speed, struck the man, one of his dogs and then a tree."

    The man and one dog were pronounced dead at the scene and the girl's father was detained.

    Prosecutors said he told investigators he was the one driving, but they later found out it was the girl. Police did not release additional information on the victim, but said he was 46. Information on the suspect's attorney was not immediately available.

    Why would you try to teach a 12 year old to drive? They can’t even get their temps until they are 15 and a half.

    We used to drive pretty young, but out in the country, away from other people. I don't know what this guy was thinking. The guy and his dog are dead, and his daughter is going to have to live with what she did for the rest of her life.
