Pregnant woman, baby killed after head-on collision
Independent Tribune ^ | February 7, 2007 | Mike Knox

Posted on 02/10/2007 11:14:17 PM PST by stainlessbanner

LANDIS - A pregnant woman and the baby she was carrying died Tuesday night after a head-on collision with a Jeep driven by a man Kannapolis police were following at the intersection of South Main Street and West First Street.

Another infant child in the car did not appear injured, officials said

Officials did not release their names. They said the woman was eight months pregnant.

Reed Linn, Landis Volunteer Fire Department chief, said the wreck occurred about 5:15 p.m.

Linn said that after the wreck, the man was pinned underneath the Jeep. Emergency service workers had to use two airbag devices to lift the vehicle off the man.

Linn said the woman was pinned in her car and responders had to cut away the doors and roof to get her out. The infant child was in a seat and was not pinned, Linn said.

Landis Police Chief Reggie Faggart said the man driving the Jeep was traveling north on South Main Street at about 70 to 80 mph, with the woman headed south. The speed limit in the area is posted at 35 mph.

As of 9 p.m., police were still trying to learn the identity of the woman in the wreck, Faggart said.

The wreck occurred after a Kannapolis Police Department officer followed the driver of the red Jeep, Kannapolis Police Maj. Woody Chavis said.

He said the officer did not actually chase the driver, but began following him after a woman told the officer she saw the Jeep hit two vehicles in Kannapolis and keep driving.

Karen Page, 35, of Kannapolis, said she saw the vehicle go by and called 911. She said she also talked to an officer.

"I saw him hit two cars at first," she said. "And I followed him trying to get his license plate number."

Tommy Wilbanks, 24, of Kannapolis, said he was driving south on Main Street just in front of the pregnant woman. Wilbanks said he saw the wreck.

He said he watched the Jeep hit the white Saturn and fly into the air.

"He went up in the air and did about three or four flips," Wilbanks said.

He said he got out of his vehicle and went to help the woman.

"I tried to talk to her and told her everything's going to be OK," Wilbanks said. "All I could do was talk to her."

The names of the victims were not released and hospitals will not release patient information without a name.

Suspect's blood alcohol under study; woman, unborn child killed

LANDIS - Blood alcohol tests will help a prosecutor decide whether to pursue second-degree murder charges against a man whose SUV hit a car driven by a pregnant Salisbury woman, authorities said Thursday.

The wreck killed Leeanna Newman, 20, who was eight months pregnant, and her unborn baby. Newman's 1-year-old daughter, Mallory, a passenger in the car, was not injured in the Tuesday wreck.

The red SUV was driven by Rigo Verto Guillen Martinez, authorities said.

Tests on the fetus will help determine whether Martinez, 33, will face a charge for the unborn baby, said Capt. Steve McNeely, the Landis police officer investigating the wreck.

McNeely said he talked about possible charges Thursday with Rowan County District Attorney William Kenerly.

A blood sample from Martinez has been sent to a Raleigh lab. If a blood alcohol test indicates Martinez was legally intoxicated, Kenerly could charge him with second-degree murder, McNeely said. A conviction would carry a sentence of 8 to 32 years in prison.

If the test shows Martinez was not intoxicated, Kenerly could charge Martinez with felony death by vehicle, which can carry a 15-month to six-year prison term.

A Kannapolis police officer reported Martinez was driving erratically Tuesday. He was following Martinez when Martinez crashed into Newman's car.

Witnesses have given conflicting reports, but some said Martinez was driving as fast as 80 mph near downtown Landis and the Kannapolis officer, David Horne, was right behind him.

Kannapolis police are examining whether Horne followed department policy on pursuing a suspect. Officers aren't supposed to chase a suspect unless the suspect committed a serious misdemeanor or a felony, Kannapolis Maj. Woody Chavis said.

Landis police are waiting for Kannapolis officers to give them a description of the Kannapolis officer's pursuit and a reconstruction of the crime scene before putting together a police report Kenerly can use to decide on charges.

Martinez was listed in fair condition Thursday at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.

McNeely said Martinez broke several bones in his legs and needs more surgery before he can be discharged and arrested.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are also still investigating Martinez' residency status.

Martinez had a Mexico driver's license when he was taken to the hospital. It's not valid in North Carolina, Landis police said. Martinez, who was living in Kannapolis near the Landis town limits, does not have an N.C. license, police said.

I am very sorry to read this ...Prayers being said for Leeanna Newman and her baby, and her family. Very sad story. It just seems all too often we are reading about illegals getting into car accidents and fatal ones at that. Shaking my head here again...... This is just getting to be too much...

And there you have the down-side of the "no chase" policy. The officer had to wait until the suspect committed a felony. Well, he finally did - murder, and a preventable one when all is said and done. And in the home of The Intimidator, too! I wonder if the rule was put in effect because the locals were tired of chasing Dale and Dale Jr.?

Ummm I have a question - How is killing a person with a car while sober LESS of a crime than killing a person (actually two) with a car while drunk?

Either way - the result is two dead people -and a horribly traumatized little girl who now no longer has her mother.

Kannapolis police are examining whether Horne followed department policy on pursuing a suspect. Officers aren't supposed to chase a suspect unless the suspect committed a serious misdemeanor or a felony, Kannapolis Maj. Woody Chavis said.

So - driving erratically, striking at least two parked vehicles, and speeding up to 80mph in a 35mph zone is not enough?

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are also still investigating Martinez' residency status.

Martinez had a Mexico driver's license when he was taken to the hospital. It's not valid in North Carolina, Landis police said. Martinez, who was living in Kannapolis near the Landis town limits, does not have an N.C. license, police said. Which means that that there is likely zero insurance...

I hope all U-KNOW-WHAT hits the fan if/when it is discovered (assuming the press doesn't cover it up) that this guy is an illegal alien.

But at the time, the legal status isn't what is important - it is the fact that this should be two cases of MURDER. I have never understood there being a differentiation between different types of homicide - it's kind of like tacking on hate-crime penalties - is the woman and her baby any less dead if alcohol was not involved? Is their death any less wrong or horrible? If he was drunk - who decided to drive drunk? It wasn't the woman and her unborn baby. IF he was not drunk - then who is to say that he wasn't trying to take someone with him?

There are WAY too many different "levels" of murder charges - in my opinion, there are only be three types of homicide - Homicide, justifiable(self defense, which generally should never even go to court), and accidental. For it to be classified as accidental, it should have to be proven that there was no way to avoid it - say a major mechanical failure, and other real accidents. Otherwise - murder is murder. And being drunk, "crazy", or mad is not an excuse, nor a mitigating circumstance.

Something similar happened in front of where I work about a month ago. Some guy in a little red honda (all accounst say he was hispanic) tried to pass someone in a no passing zone. He got run over by a fully loaded dump truck. We can't find out what happened to him. They are keeping it under wraps since New Haven, CT is a sanctuary city for illegals.

Bigotry, definitely.

Call it what you wish, but I call it a damned invasion of our sovereignty by illegal invaders that cannot and will not pay their own way and end up killing too many innocent Americans.

The "racism" part was sarcasm, as I'm well aware that being Mexican has nothing to do with "race", except for those that choose to make it such, such as the "guest worker" apologists on this forum.

Yeah, I'm a bigot.

Proud of it, too.

I will never accept illegal invaders as a routine part of the way we do business in America.

And yes, I'm well aware of the fact that legal immigrants and citizens have accidents and drive drunk too, but they normally are properly licensed, insured and capable of understanding the consequences of their actions, since they are legal!

There is no recourse for the victim to take against the illegal invaders.

Even if they are convicted for their crimes, they get deported immediately, then return for more forays and there is no civil justice with them as they have no assets, being "illegal", as they are.

But I digess, having sunk to the level of "bigot".

Perhaps I should gather a few maggot-infested hippies, get out the old guitar and sit around the fire on the beach, chanting kum-bah-yah, m'lord and moaning about the plight of the poor brown-skinned bracero.

Yeah, sure.

I'll just remain a bigot.

Your distinction is false, and your explanation meaningless. Not everyone with a Hispanic surname is an illegal. It's just a simple fact, and simple logic dictates that your reaction is bigoted.

Complaining about our Administration's failed immigration policy is just window-dressing.

We had a local woman killed recently by one of these illegal aliens who ran through a STOP sign. The alien was cited, but by the time they decided to put out a warrant and arrest him for the crime, he had fled to Mexico.

A lot of local people are injured or their cars damaged by illegal aliens driving without insurance, and usually without valid licenses. In NC, it is easy for illegals to get drivers licenses, but many don't bother - despite the fact there is a full-time Spanish speaker on the DMV staff to help them fill out forms and take the tests.

The other day, I came within a whisker of getting hit head-on by one of these illegal aliens who was driving out of control. Don't ask me "how" I know it was an illegal. I know. They are obvious by the way they drive, the cars they are driving, and their demeanor.

Americans continue under this daily assault by illegals and the deadly problem is blithely ignored by most of our politicians and usually our law enforcement. They can't do anything about them, so they just don't bother.

Another illegal gets drunk, drives, and kills. It's a common story.

Not everyone with a Hispanic surname is an illegal.

Certainly. In Southwest states, and larger urban areas in the NE, many Hispanics are legal residents.

Their legality gets less likely in places like Kannapolis, NC and Gainesville, GA. Add in the fact that most legal residents would probably have a valid DL, and any thinking person would be justified in concluding that the perp in this case is illegal. Hardly bigotry; just logic, augmented by experience.

I would immediately say he was an illegal invader [based on his surname], however, the illegal invader apologists (read: liberal RINO pacifist cowards) around here would just accuse me of racism. [emphasis added]

Experience? Maybe, if a knee-jerk reaction qualifies. Logic? No. Bigotry? See above.

Well, then I'm a bigot as well, because whenever I hear of a fatal/injury crash in my area (N. GA), especially one that involves hit-and-run, I immediately think "illegal."

I don't even bother to wait for the "Hispanic surname."

And I'm usually proven right. I guess I'm a super-bigot.

I don't ignore it. I consider it logical that I have noticed a preponderence of fatal auto accidents in my area, which has a large population of illegals, are caused by illegals. Certainly not all of them, but a number which seems far out of proportion with the rest of the population.

What would be illogical is assuming that the news media in my area is distorting the truth or misidentifying the status of drivers at fault in these incidents, leading me to a fallacious conclusion.

I, surprisingly enough to me, am not alone in that observation, as evidenced by the posts of others on threads such as these.

If you have not noticed such a phenomenon in your locale, consider yourself lucky.

You don't get it, do you? (And yes, I've noticed it too). The simple fact of the matter is that guessing at the immigration status based on someone's surname is not logic. It is presumption/b>. And there's nothing wrong with it, as long as you don't pass it off as logic. With regard to the others on this thread, I refer you to my comment #36.

My conclusion, that illegals present a threat on the roads far greater than the native population, is certainly logical, based on my observations.

As I said, I don't even have to wait to hear the name. As for single-car accidents, I immediately think white, middle-class teenager.

Tragic; the headline made it sound as though the baby collided with the pregnant woman so I expected to read that she had been holding a baby on her lap when the crash occurred.

I enjoyed the irony of trying, with no success, to discuss the English language with you. Call what you want "logic," personally, I don't care if you call it Francis. So be it. The "logic" of the following:

A. a driver with an Hispanic surname was involved in an accident,
B. a good number of illegal immigrants have Hispanic surnames,
C. therefore, the driver is an illegal immigrant,

is easily defeated by observing that not all people with Hispanic surnames are illegal immigrants. The moment you fall back on words that indicate probability, such as "almost always," or whatever, you are speculating. Guesses, even educated ones (to which you are certainly entitled), are not examples of logic. In fact, now that I think about it (but I may be wrong), the logical fallacy itself is named an "error of distribution."

If they let him out on bail he will be gone in a blink of an eye. Happened here a couple of years ago. An illegal killed a fireman riding on a motorcycle. Pulled out directly in front of him. He did not have a chance. The illegal posted bail and has never been seen of heard from again.
