NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

A 22-year-old Lufkin man was booked into the Nacogdoches County Jail Friday on an intoxicated manslaughter charge in connection to a fatal two-vehicle accident that occurred in Garrison on May 20.

Eric Allen Summey, who was indicted by a Nacogdoches County grand jury on July 1, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail. According to the jail Website, no bail has been set at this time.

Staci Armfield, 23, of Maryville, Tenn., died at the scene of the accident, which occurred near the intersection U.S. Highway 59 and FM 95.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety report, Summey was driving a 2011 GMC pickup at 5:28 a.m. when  he struck the rear end of a 2007 Ford, driven by Leticia Castillo Jernigan, 51, of Garrison.

Jernigan's vehicle left the road, overturned, and struck a house, causing heavy damage to the structure. Summey's truck also rolled over, and his passengers, Armfield and Chad Belcher, 24, of Madisonville, Tenn., were ejected from the vehicle.

Armfield was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, and Summey, Belcher, and Jernigan were taken to Nacogdoches hospitals for treatment of their injuries.

According to the DPS report, neither Armfield nor Belcher was wearing their seat belts when the accident occurred.

A resident of the house damaged as a result of the accident said that an hour before Jernigan's car hit the home, she was sitting on a couch near the point of impact.

"I woke up to this really loud bang, and I don't know what it was," Terri Duncan said. "'My mom comes through and says, ‘What is that?' And I say, ‘I don't know.'"
