Joseph McMullin, 33, was killed in a crash in Houston while on a first date with Briana Iturrino in the 1200 block of Westheimer Road. Police say McMullin had just come out of Voodoo Doughnut and was walking down the sidewalk with his date when he was struck. Premier Houston-based personal injury law firm, Kherkher Garcia, LLP, filed a lawsuit in Harris County District Court on behalf of the McMullin's parents Christopher and Lynn McMullin.Kristina Chambers, 32, was accused and charged for the crash. According to the lawsuit, Chambers was driving a Porsche 911 Carrera at more than 100mph when she allegedly lost control, careened off the sidewalk, and violently collided with McMullin who was walking on the sidewalk.

Surveillance video apparently showed the Porsche running into McMullin and throwing him 30 feet in the air before crashing into a pole.
