A drunk driver killed two, injured others, and had the audacity to try and flee the scene of the crime.
The accident happened last Tuesday night at the intersection of Military Parkway and Jim Miller Road. Reports say 34-year-old Leodegario Hernandez Juarez of Irving ran a red light in his Ford F-150 causing him to slam into two other vehicles.
The accident left debris everywhere along the intersection as impact caused one of the cars to slam into a pole leaving it completely totaled.
Reports claim that the suspect then got out of his truck and attempted to flee the scene of the accident. That is when witnesses chased and tackled Juarez to the ground until police officials could arrive.
Tragically the two that were killed in the accident were identified as 49-year-old James Carr and 43-year-old Lashun Russell of Dallas. Additionally, an 8 year old child is currently being treated at the Children Medical Center and is listed to be in critical condition.
