    'Grossly impaired' illegal immigrant blamed for crash that killed toddler

    'Grossly impaired' illegal immigrant blamed for crash that killed toddler

    Illegal immigrant Jose Romero, 27, is accused of slamming into an ambulance that overturned after being struck, killing a 3-year-old boy early Sunday in Winston-Salem, N.C. (Winston-Salem Police Department)


    An unlicensed illegal immigrant was “grossly impaired” when he crashed into an ambulance and killed a 3-year-old boy, court papers say.

    The boy, from Wise, Va., died Monday, a day after the crash. He was with his mother in the ambulance when it was struck and rolled over in Winston-Salem, N.C. Lyndsay Ann Oakes, 27, suffered minor injuries. The boy was not identified.

    Jose Duran Romero, 27, blew a 0.19 on a breathalyzer nearly two hours after the crash, more than twice the legal limit, FOX8 Winston-Salem reported late Monday.

    Court papers say Romero, who was behind the wheel of a Honda Accord even though he had never owned a driver’s license, had “bloodshot, glassy eyes,” slurred his speech and looked “grossly impaired,” according to the station.

    Romero was also in the country illegally, the station reported.

    Federal authorities lodged an immigration detainer against him after his arrest. They said he was from El Salvador.

    The ambulance was taking the boy and his mother to a trauma center.

    Gary Oakes said Monday his grandson had been under medical care before the crash but didn't want to elaborate. Asked how the family was coping, Oakes said, "It's devastating."

    Lyndsay Ann Oakes asked for privacy on her Facebook page.

    Police said the Honda was traveling south on U.S. 52 at around 1 a.m. Sunday when it rammed into the side of the ambulance which was also going south.

    The two paramedics in the ambulance were treated for minor injuries, the Winston-Salem Journal reported Tuesday.

    A police spokesman told the paper Romero and a passenger in the Honda, Andres Leon, 33, fled after the crash. One was caught right away by a person who saw the crash and held for cops. The other man was captured by police a short time later.

    Romero was charged with driving while intoxicated and driving without a license. He was being held without bail after bail had been set and then revoked.

    It was unclear if the charges would be upgraded as a result of the child’s death.

    Leon was being held on $1,000 bail after being charged with failure to render aid and to provide information.

    Baby injured in crash involving ambulance in Winston-Salem has died

    Jose Martin Duran Romero

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A baby that was injured in a crash involving an ambulance in Winston-Salem has died, according to Winston-Salem police.

    Police say 27-year-old Jose Duran Romero crashed a Honda Accord into the side of a Mercedes Lifecare Ambulance on southbound U.S. 52 near Liberty Street around 1:15 a.m. Sunday. Both drivers lost control. The ambulance rolled over on its side and the Honda ran off the road.

    Police say Romero’s blood-alcohol content was at more than twice the legal limit and he didn’t have a driver’s license. Federal authorities also believe Romero was in the country illegally.

    EMS rushed the baby, the mother and two paramedics inside the ambulance to the hospital. Winston-Salem police said they were notified at 6:05 p.m. Monday that the baby had passed away. The others are expected to be OK.

    Police say the ambulance left from Wise, Virginia, more than a three-hour drive from Winston-Salem. Police wouldn’t tell FOX8 where the passengers in the ambulance were heading or why they were driving through the Triad.

    Romero is in jail on a $50,000 secured bond. He’s charged with DWI, failing to reduce speed to avoid a crash and driving without a license. Federal authorities also put Romero under an immigration detainer. The detainer will allow U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents to take Romero into custody once he is released from local custody.

    Romero’s passenger, Andres Leon, 33, is charged with failing to render aid and give information. He was given a $1,000 bond and Forsyth County Jail officials say he was not in the jail as of Sunday night.

    Court documents give more details about what happened after the crash. A witness described what Romero looked like to police after the crash. He had “bloodshot, glassy eyes,” “slurred speech” and looked “grossly impaired.”

    Romero blew a 0.19 on a breathalyzer nearly two hours after the crash; that’s more than twice the legal limit.

    Court documents also show Romero has never had a driver’s license.

    Romero will be in court for a first appearance hearing Tuesday morning and has another court hearing scheduled for April.

    They have no respect for our laws.

    Wonder if he is a dreamer, a UAC or just a plain illegal. Once again the media does not divulge immigration status and that hides the consequences involved with the millions here w/o papers.

    He's not supposed to have a drivers license in the US, because he's not supposed to driving on US roads, because he's not supposed to be in the country to begin with.

    Well... MAYBE...according to amnesty loving John Kelly...he was just one of the "lazy" ones that did not apply for DACA.



    HEY JOHN KELLY...MAYBE HE WAS TOO DRUNK TO APPLY FOR DACA!

    YOU NEED TO BE FIRED AND TAKE KIRSTEN WITH YOU!

    BOOT ALL DACA AND ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS OUT OF OUR COMMUNITIES!

    The first article clearly states that he is an illegal from El Salvador. I am so weary of hearing about drunk illegals killing people. It is past time for Kate's Law. IMO
