Repeat DWI offender is being sued by the family of a man who was killed in a wrong-way crash in Dallas.
Last October, Melvin Taylor was killed in a wrong-way crash on the Dallas North Tollway.
According to reports from the Police officers, Chaz Thames was drunk when he drove north in the southbound lanes and hit Taylor’s vehicle.
Later, Thames’ charges were revised and upgraded from intoxication manslaughter to murder.
Checking his previous records, officers stated that Thames already had three felony DWI convictions and when this crash took place, he was driving on parole.

Larry Taylor, an attorney for the family said that “When you have someone with multiple felony DWIs that in of itself tells you something and we shouldn’t have to be here today to realize that’s a problem,”
The Taylor family wants to know why Thames was drunk that day. They are also planning to file a lawsuit against people who are responsible for ignoring him.
