According to a release, Chambers was driving a blue Porshe 911 Carrera westbound on the 1200 block of Westheimer when she failed to maintain a single lane and struck a curb. 

That impact, police said, caused the vehicle to leave the roadway and strike 33-year-old Joseph McMullin, who was a pedestrian on the sidewalk. 

The vehicle then continued to travel and struck a pole in a nearby parking lot. 


Officials said McMullin was pronounced dead on the scene by paramedics. 

Chambers and two passengers who were inside the Porshe were taken to area hospitals.

Further investigation revealed that Chambers showed signs of intoxication and she was later charged.

She was released from the hospital and booked into jail on Monday. 

No word if bond was set for Chambers.
