Driver Charged and Arrested in Accident Which Killed Pedestrian
A driver that hit an 18 year old pedestrian which resulted in her death has been apprehended and charged with causing the auto accident. The suspect has been identified as 37 year old Wilson Villa-Cabrera who hails from Ecuador and his victim was 18 year old Karina Tinajero-Arreguin who was attempting to make her way across the street, according to nbcconnecticut.com.
The suspect is being held in custody in lieu of bond worth $50,000 and his passport has also been seized. He has been charged with misconduct with a motor vehicle since he did not stop after the crash, which is common in such cases say Connecticut accident lawyers for someone who does not stop after a crash and try to render assistance. It is not known whether or not he has an accident lawyer to represent him in the case or whether he will need to be appointed a public defendant.
Does he know English? Should people who do not know English be able to drive? That is the question.
Villa-Cabrera was not drunk nor on drugs and distracted driving does not seem to be a factor. But he still hit her. Tinajero-Arreguin was not in the crosswalk though but still the driver should have been able to avoid this high school student.
