That’s really irrelevant.
Residential street, 25 mph speed limit is for a reason. Kids playing, people out and about, etc.
“After the crash, Pacheco put his car in reverse and sped away from the scene. Neighbors followed him to his house about a block away, where they held him until police arrived and arrested Pacheco on felony DUI, hit and run and driving without a valid license. Pacheco has a prior misdemeanor DUI conviction from January 2007. He is on probation.
He is being held in the county jail on $100,000 bail.
Pacheco does not have auto insurance.”
And the woman who lost her legs: a *LEGAL* IMMIGRANT.
“I was holding Lili. She was conscious. All she kept saying was Check the kids. Her legs were crushed, and she was just worried about the kids, he said.”
I wouldn’t exactly call it irrelevant. Had she been legally parked off the driving lane, it appears the accident wouldn’t have happened as it did. Doesn’t excuse the driver by any means but double-parking is risky and people should avoid it if at all possible, especially after dark.
For all he knew, he left her to die or she was dead. And so should he be.
Or at least go an eye for an eye, then deport him.
This sort of thing just makes my blood BOIL!!!
I’m sorry but I wouldn’t call it irrelevent either,
but it dosn’t feel right to argue that fact now,
I’m so saddened by this story.Prayers for the family,
and I hope justice is done.
