Man pleads guilty to intoxication manslaughter in 2018 Buda crash that killed 21-year-old

BUDA, TX – A man has pled guilty to charges of intoxication manslaughter in connection with a crash that killed a 21-year-old man in November 2018, according to KXAN.

The accident happened in Buda at the intersection of Treetop Way and Dove Drive after Cade Brown, of Kyle, reportedly had been drinking throughout the day.

Brown was reportedly going over double the speed limit of 35 mph when he ran off the side of the road and collided with a tree.
