Clerk accused of selling alcohol to teen before fatal wreck

LUBBOCK, Texas -

HOUSTON (AP) - A Houston-area convenience store clerk has been charged with selling alcohol to a 17-year-old driver before a wreck that killed two of the teen's classmates.
  
Gumaro Munoz Campos of Humble (UHM'-buhl) was arrested Sunday, then freed on $1,000 bond.
  
Prosecutors believe Jaggar Smith drank a bottle of wine before the July 25 accident that killed 16-year-olds Salma Gomez and Chloe Robison. All three attended Atascocita (uh-tas-koh-SEE'-tuh) High School.
  
Smith is charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter.
  
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission on Monday identified the store as Humble Handy Stop. The store in 2012 was fined $2,400 and had its TABC license suspended for eight days for selling alcohol to a minor.
  
A man answering the telephone Monday at the store hung up when an Associated Press reporter sought comment.
