11/22/2019- Larry Taylor of The Cochran Firm Dallas and the family of Melvin Taylor are asking lawmakers to do more to keep the public safe from intoxicated drivers. On October 29 Melvin, a marine veteran from Lancaster, TX, was killed in a wrong-way crash as Chaz Thames drove northbound in the southbound lane of the Dallas North Tollway. Thames had been convicted in numerous DWI charges before the crash that took Melvin’s life. “There are devices that you can actually put on someone that let you know immediately if they have alcohol in their system. There are things that could have been done to ensure that he did not have a drink after being paroled,” said attorney Taylor. Thames has been jailed and charged with murder and his bail has been set at $500,000.
