Siblings frustrated, angry about sister's death

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Andreaka Bell is described as an 18-year-old who was full of life and planned to become an accountant.

Bell's older sister DeAndra says, "She was just a person who loved to live life and when she walked into a room she just brighten up someone's day."

DeAndra and DeAndre Bell have nothing but fond memories of their little sister.  That's because the LaPorte High School graduate was killed in a car crash here on Pasadena Blvd at Louisiana on August 14 at 2 in the morning.

DeAndre says, "Her and two other friends had went to a little get together a little party and she went in there for about ten minutes but she really wasn't feeling good so she went back to the car to lay down and go to sleep."

The Bell's maintain Andreaka's friends had been drinking at that party including the driver.  A driver we're not naming because an arrest hasn't been made and the investigation was just launched by the Harris County District Attorney's Office.

DeAndra says, "The parents who were at the party kicked the girls out knowing they had been drinking.  Then leaving the party the driver had been driving recklessly leaving the party."

That driver according to police lost control and the car flipped several times.  When the dust cleared 18 year old Andreaka Bell was dead.  The driver and second passenger survived. 9 months later the Bells want to know why they don't have justice and why the driver was not tested for alcohol or drugs.

"It's almost like we've been getting the run around for the last 8 months and it seems like they're laughing in our faces and ridiculing us," says DeAndre.

The Deer Park police department handled the case. Lt. Wade Connor says he's investigating if the accident and the investigation were properly handled by his officers. He also wants to know why blood alcohol and toxicology test were not done on the driver.

A driver whose mother released this discharge record to FOX 26.  It's not a toxicology report but it reads: "Patient was not inebriated or intoxicated at time of accident."

Lt. Connor said he was 99% sure not tests were done on the driver but he can't be certain because the file is now with the district attorney.

The Bells also point to defiant posts placed on social media by the driver after the accident. Lines like: F all Y'all saying I'm a F-ing murderer...or tweets like alcohol is bad so why does it make you feel so good.

DeAndra says, "When people are constantly sending me stuff this girl is doing and them personally seeing her at parties it's very frustrating."

I had a chance to speak to that driver on the phone and she denies drinking that night and she says she doesn't drink at all. She also says what happened to Andreaka that night was just an accident.  

A spokesperson for the Harris County District Attorney's Office says their investigation into the accident is just beginning.
