HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — A man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for an accident that killed a 19-year-old woman in 2019 as she was driving to fetch ice cream, records show.

A jury on Friday convicted Jahson Albert, whose age is unknown, of involuntary manslaughter by intoxication.

In October 2019, Jackie Pleytez was sitting at a red light near Spring High School when Albert sped through other cars, Harris County Precinct 4 deputies said.

Albert reportedly then hit a curb, flew into the air and landed on top of the teenager’s car. MPs say Albert was high on marijuana at the time of the crash.

Pleytez was hospitalized with a fractured skull and brain swelling, which resulted in her death later that month.

Pleytez’s family was heartbroken at the news that their beloved daughter would not survive.

“It destroyed our family. Our family will never be the same after this tragedy,” said Rudy Pleytez, Jackie’s father.

Jackie had ambitions to be a pediatrician and, according to her family, volunteered at Texas Children’s Hospital.
