Ashton Craven charged with felony DWI.
Ashton Vincent Craven looks very surprised in his mugshot, and maybe it's because he has learned of what he's done.

Craven, 38, was diving drunk when he ran a stop sign at Bataan and Rutland a little after 1 Saturday afternoon, cops say.

His Taurus struck a Corolla driven by a woman who was five months pregnant.

"The female was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital and doctors later determined she lost her baby due to the accident," HPD says.

Craven was treated for injuries at Ben Taub General Hospital before being taken to jail. He faces felony DWI charges.

No female should have to go thru what this lady young is going to deal with mentally and physically Ashton appeared to be a good dude but made a mistake that he's going to have to deal with for the rest of his life. I wish I could of help him out before this event occurred. I have a family member that took someone's life while under the influence, this is bad for both families will be praying for both families Corey Mo

Man this dude was a cool dude just made bad choice at the wrong time in his life Craven was a classmate of mine for the past year where I had the opportunity to sit and socialize with him and I would have to say the way he look in that photo is not a everyday look for him. Mad about the whole thing but a bit more mad that he was a month or so away from finishing school SMDH.

If the woman would've wanted to terminate the pregnancy it would simply be a "choice". Why, then is this man being charged this way?

Your comment is offensive and quite disturbing. Maybe you would like to lose a child. Who the hell are you to say she wanted to terminate the pregnancy? The women that this happened to is a close friend of ours and wanted this child more than anything your simple mind can imagine. I hope you are next in line in hell behind this dumb bastard.

Nice way to use this tragedy to further your own personal platform.

First off, she was five months pregnant which is long past the time of choice.  Second, it was her choice, not his.  Third, this is the second time he has murdered a young innocent with his drunk driving.  Your comment and lack of sympathy for all his victims is disturbing.

Why is the comment offensive?  It's JUST a non-viable tissue mass.  Nothing more than a wart or a cancerous mole.  We wouldn't charge a doctor with murder for removing a wart or a mole.  Why is this man being charged with such a severe crime for this?  If he committed negligent homicide prior to this then he should be in prison and this incident would not have happened and this discussion would not be taking place.

Good point I thought the same thing.... one day baby coming next day gone :(. I am a good friend of Ashton actually a very good person just goes to show how a addiction can overpower any good judgment. Very unfortunate for both parties and their families. :( my prayers go out.

Can't believe how some people react.. This has nothing to do with anyone's religious views.. A lady lost her baby!!! Offcourse it is really sad... why is anyone even thinking about abortion or anything .. the fact that she was 5 months pregnant shows she wanted the baby.. imagine all the things they wud be doing preparing for the baby to come and just like that everything is gone .. if u can't understand atleast shut up and don't comment.. Needless to say, I feel bad for the guy also...

 I think the offense is that religious zealots want to use this ladies tragedy to forward your 2000 year old views. Where in this article does it mention abortion? It doesn't. Go back to your prayer circle in front of Planned Parenthood.
