James Hutchins 11/26/1989 Driver’s License Photo

Early evening Wednesday September 6, 2017, the La Porte Police Department received a 911 call for a major crash in the 10600 block of North P Street. La Porte Police, Fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) were quickly dispatched to the crash scene.  Upon arrival first responders found two heavily damaged vehicles, a blue Dodge Ram and a black Chevrolet Tahoe.

The victim, Kelly Schoppe was driving the Tahoe and was only a few blocks from her La Porte home when she was struck by James Hutchins 11/26/1989 of La Porte. Schoppe was transported by helicopter to Hermann Hospital where she is still being treated for her injuries.

Hutchins was transported by ambulance to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries and released a few days later. Hutchins had an adult male passenger, who was treated on scene and released.

Crash investigators believe Hutchins was driving the Dodge Ram while intoxicated, at a high rate of speed, lost control of the vehicle, crossed the center line and struck, the Chevrolet Tahoe head on. Investigators contacted the Harris County District Attorney’s Office who accepted the charge for Intoxication Assault with a vehicle. A Felony “no bond” warrant for the charge was issued by Harris County Criminal Court 263, Cause Number 1564063 for Intoxication Assault with a vehicle, against James Hutchins.

After the warrant was issued, La Porte Police began looking for Hutchins with the assistance of multiple agencies, to include Pasadena Police, Chambers, Galveston and Harris County Sheriff Departments.

After two weeks on the run with the La Porte Police Department closing in on him, Hutchins turned himself in to the Harris County Jail, late afternoon September 22, 2017.





Comments:
28 years old and his life already ruined from bad choices. Glad he will be put away so he can no longer injure anyone else. I hope Kelly Schoppe is able to make a complete recovery from this boy's bad judgement.
