In the video, Morejon, speaking in Spanish, boasted that he drives better when he drinks, KPRC-TV reported, citing prosecutors.

Less than 10 minutes later, Morejon then crashed into a black pickup truck, killing his passengers, the report said.

The crash was caught on camera, according to the report, and shows Morejon speeding before the collision.

Morejon was charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter and one count of intoxication assault, prosecutors said.
