Child killed in crash when alleged drunk driver Jose Martin Duran Romero, 27, strikes ambulance on US-52 South in Winston-Salem, North Carolina
According to investigators, Romero crashed into the ambulance on US-52 South, just after 1 a.m. When officers got to the scene, they found the ambulance flipped over on its side.
The youngster was en route to a trauma center with his mother around 1 a.m. when the Virginia-based ambulance was struck on a North Carolina highway, said Winston-Salem Police Lt. Rick Newnum. He described the boy as a toddler or an infant.
A young boy who was inside an ambulance that overturned after it was hit by a suspected drunk driver has died, police confirm.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued a detainer that would allow them to remove Jose Martin Duran Romero if he’s released from local custody. ICE said Tuesday that the suspect is a citizen of El Salvador.
