Man charged after fatal crash in Texas that killed 3, hurt 9

KERRVILLE, Texas (AP) — A man remained jailed Sunday after being charged in a fatal crash in Central Texas that killed three people and injured nine others.

Members of the Thin Blue Line Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club were on a ride Saturday south of Kerrville when a vehicle crossed a highway center strip and crashed into the group, according to the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office. Kerrville is located about 65 miles (105 kilometers) northwest of San Antonio.

“The ride was in celebration of the club’s birthday when the accident occurred,” the sheriff’s office said.

The motorcycle club is part of a national group that is made up of active duty, retired and reserve law enforcement officers.

The vehicle’s driver, 28-year-old Ivan Robles, was arrested and has been charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter and six counts of intoxication assault.

Court records did not list an attorney for Robles, who is from Center Point, Texas, which is southeast of Kerrville.

The nine motorcycle club members who were hospitalized were listed in critical condition, according to the sheriff’s office.
