From Fox News: 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.

  1. I hope they got this guy under lock and key and plenty of guards. You know what the father of that baby is thinking and you can’t blame him though. Until we get politicians who will do there job this will continue and will get even worse one enough people get hurt then the citizens will take matters into their own hands and that will destroy more lives and families.

  2. Illegals have more rights than US citizens. They get the red carpet treatment in every crime!! Take a goog look at the young woman murdered by an illegal while walking with her father in San Francisco.

    • greenworxx . . . I certainly do hope that “justice is served on this POS.” It is shocking, but EVERY DAY WE READ OF YET ANOTHER ILLEGAL WHO HAS KILLED ONE OF OUR CITIZENS.” I just wish that if they must kill off our countrymen . . . that they would start targeting the leftists who support Sanctuary Cities/States.

  6. A little boy paid with his life -parents loosing a child, and an illegal drunk, who after serving will be returned TO HIS MOTHER LAND, if he makes it alive and completes his numerous sentence, meantime, we, taxpayers will be paying for his room and board, medical expenses, dental, how unfair, and all because MUSTAFA OBAMA and his clan, Pelosi and the rest of the SOBs democrats widely opened the doors to the hoards of parasites to invade the heart of our Nation.

    • Alma . . . . Bravo! You have called that correctly. It is a travesty that we the taxpayers will have to support these nair-do-wells. How many older American citizens do you know that cannot even afford to go to the dentist to get their own teeth fixed, due to the high cost? I would imagine plenty, I know several of my friends who are in that boat. In fact, I talked to one friend today who was complaining of an aching tooth . . . she told me she was going to have to go to the dentist — even if she had to pay “$35.00 a month on the bill.” Which left me wondering, where in today’s world do you find a dentist who extends credit on work performed. I know that was in vogue 30 years ago, but not so much today. When I had my implants, and crowns–they forced me to put all the money down. Even though the work was going to be performed over a period of many months. But, here felons get their stuff done and you and I get the pleasure of paying for it.

      I certainly agree, this influx of illegals have been allowed in the most part by the Democrats.

  7. The perfect example of why we have to vet who is coming into our country. The left doesn’t care about protecting the innocent, we know this is about future votes for them.
    We have to build the wall to help slow down the flow of drugs and are also killing thousands of Americans. The liberals can say what they want, but we are a civilized country and have the right to safety and protection.
    The illegals have a big propensity to using drugs,and alcohol and driving under the influence, it is their way of life, but it doesn’t have to be ours. We have enough with keeping Citizens off of the abuses.
    Border patrol officers have said where there is a wall, crossings have slowed up to 95% in places.

  8. Glenn47 . . . I was extremely disheartened to learn that there was an impasse in the voting on “DACA and building The Wall.” There were Rhino’s who crossed over and sided with the Dems. I am just disgusted by their antics. One bone of contention is that is that DACA recipients WOULD NOT be able to sponsor their illegal parents, if and when they received citizenship. That sounds like exactly the sort of thing that they should not be permitted to do! I myself really do not care if the children of law breakers receive citizenship. It is for darn sure, if DACA is permanently put in place–then it needs to be paired with building The Wall. Many of the Dems wanted to finance The Wall over 10-12 years, rather than immediately. Good grief, that would mean we would have over a decade of more and more illegals jumping our boarder.

    There is no doubt that those who have come here from the South, have altogether different values . . . I say stay home and kill your own people! We end up with the dregs of their society, people who are uneducated, people who are not able to live their lives without receiving welfare, and/or other benefits. People who do not love this country, their allegiance is to Mexico. People who do not wish to speak English, although English is the language of this country.

  9. This type of scenario makes my blood run cold with worry and fear: for me, my husband, and my (completely drug-and-alcohol-free his entire life) 20-year old son. If some SOB takes out our son, it will be the end of my husband’s family tree, literally; if that SOB takes out my husband, he would have killed this family’s breadwinner who just happened to be my heart and soul’s beloved one-and-only husband of nearly 27 years.

    And the bastard DROVE AWAY?? Who does that? (Someone who probably has an IQ around 81 at best, and drunk to boot.). Capital punishment, tempting though it may be, wouldn’t bring anyone back: the young boy that actually died (pray for his poor mother; I will), or the loved ones who populate my real life and gruesome fantasy.

    No, I say: keep him around so the victim(s) can sue him to take what little he has. They can attach his present and future wages, even if he’s paid under the table. Or our government could get off its collective ass and get these losers OUT OF HERE…and keep them OUT.

    There WILL be real justice in the afterlife/during the Resurrection. There will eventually be a final judgment and the penalty will be severe, I promise. (If it were me, I’d rather pay the penalty while I was still here on this Earth, but many don’t get the easy way out.)

    My boss was recently got hit while he was stopped at a traffic light. His car was totaled, and he had head and back trauma. The girl that hit him he been messing with her phone and didn’t stop in time; she was traveling about 35 mph when she hit him. She told the cop that she was on her way to her 2nd job (out of three, boo hoo), and she was tired; my boss witnessed her messing with her phone. She didn’t have a driver license, but she DID have an “International Identification Card”, whatever that is. When all was said and done, she was charged by the police for….nothing. Not for not having the required insurance (an unlicensed driver can’t be insured), not for driving without a license, not for distracted driving, not for using her cellphone while operating a motor vehicle…NOTHING.

    He sued her and her parents (they owned the car, insured it at California’s minimum, and allowed their unlicensed daughter to drive the car. All he got out of the lawsuit was a replacement vehicle. After all the costs and court fees, medical expenses, loss of income due to injury, legal assistance. And the young woman paid for none of it.

    • I hear you Rec—both my son and his (then) girlfriend were t-boned in different/separate accidents by unlicensed illegals who got out of their disabled vehicles and ran away from the scene. They were both paid a sum by the State of CA by a sort of fund set up by state gov’t to address these sorts of these alien-caused accidents with personal damages to the victims. It was a minimal payment, did NOT in the least cover the angst, trouble, and replacement of a vehicle, but it was SOMETHING….AND, I might add…one of those costs that are NEVER EVER addressed in CA when all the talking points come up about how illegal aliens “do not cost us anything…….”
