    FOX 13 reporter locates suspects who fled fatal hit-and-run crash

    This was reported on my local Fox news. It was mentioned that the two individuals were likely undocumented. It's suspected that the accident was the result of the driver being drunk. Too much time had expired by the time the men were captured to test for alcohol.

    The driver and passenger who fled on foot from a single-car crash that left another passenger dead have been located-- thanks to a FOX 13 reporter.
    FOX 13's Alcides Segui was reporting on the crash near the scene Friday morning, when he says he saw two shirtless men in the woods. Segui called Florida Highway Patrol to report the suspicious individuals, then followed the men as they walked southbound.

    FHP made contact with the men, and discovered that they were in fact the driver and passenger involved in the crash who fled the scene on foot. Both were arrested.


    The crash occurred on southbound U.S. 301 near Bishop Road just after 1:04 a.m. Friday.

    According to Florida Highway Patrol, the SUV, a 2004 GMC Yukon, was headed southbound when the driver lost control for unknown reasons. The vehicle rotated, left the roadway, and collided with several trees before coming to a rest.
    Investigators believe three people were in the car at the time of the crash. The driver and one passenger fled the scene on foot, leaving another passenger in the car.
    The remaining passenger suffered fatal injuries and was found dead at the scene of the crash.
    A massive search was launched for the two suspects, using K9s and helicopters.
    But it was FOX 13's Alcides Segui who spotted the men walking southbound along U.S. 301.

    This happened close to where my Mother used to live. Florida is overrun because there are so many job opportunities.

    Two Illegal Immigrants Arrested after Fleeing Deadly Car Crash

    Wimauma, FL

    Two illegal immigrants have been arrested after crashing a car and leaving one of their fellow passengers in the vehicle to die as they fled the scene on foot.

    Oscar Lopez-Yesca, the 22-year-old who was allegedly driving the vehicle, and Moliton Ramirez-Mati, a 23-year-old alleged passenger, were identified by eyewitnesses in the car crash, according to FOX 13 News.

    Lopez-Yesca and Ramirez-Mati are accused of crashing a 2004 GMC Yukon into a wooded, tree-lined area and then fleeing the vehicle, leaving their third passenger dead in his seat.

    Eyewitnesses with FOX 13 said they saw the two shirtless men walking along the highway about two hours after the car crash.

    “We were parked along the side of the road and there was a construction crew that was working nearby, they drove up on us and said, ‘We just saw two men walk out of the woods without shirts on.’ So right away that was a red flag for us, we called 911,” one FOX 13 reporter said. “We got in our truck and we started to follow these guys.”

    Florida State Troopers arrived and arrested both men, saying that neither had any forms of identification because of their illegal immigrant statuses.

    Expert Jim Diamond told FOX 13 that illegal immigrant criminals are essentially “invisible” if they are freed or escape custody after a crime has been committed.

    “They may just fade away because there’s no anchor and nothing in our research or investigative processes that would lead to an identity,” Diamond said.

    Both illegal immigrants are now facing criminal charges and immigration violations.
