One man is dead and another is charged with intoxicated manslaughter after both their vehicles rolled over in a car accident early Saturday morning on Interstate 45 in League City.

Carson Wrinkle, 22, of Tiki Island, died at the scene, police said.

The accident happened about 1:30 a.m. near the FM 518 exit in the southbound lanes of I-45, police said.

Witnesses told police a Nissan passenger car was speeding, failed to maintain a lane and struck a Jeep Wrangler that Wrinkle was driving, police said.

Both cars rolled over, and the crash scene took up the main lanes, grassy median and service road, police said.

Carlos Sanchez III of League City was arrested and charged with intoxication manslaughter, police said. His bond was set at $100,000, police said.
