Last month, Ramiro Serrano Hernandez, 26, was arrested for killing a young woman in Provo, only hours after being cited for public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
On Aug. 25, around 1:30 a.m., Hernandez lost control of a borrowed Jeep Grand Cherokee, crashed into a parked car, then ran over 22-year-old Ashlee Zimmer who was sitting on the curb across the street from her home.
After Zimmer was hit, her body became attached to the SUV. Hernandez did not stop and then smashed through a fence, and finally hit a building, according to police.
Hernandez jumped from the vehicle, and fled the scene.
He was found hiding behind a dumpster an hour later.
Hernandez had a blood alcohol level of .192, more than twice the legal limit.
The Salt Lake Tribune reported:
Once in custody, Hernandez admitted to drinking five to six beers earlier at a wedding, then another five to six beers at home before driving the SUV, according to the charges.
Zimmer died shortly after the crash at a local hospital. She left behind a husband and her parents. She had only been married for four months at the time of her death.
Hernandez was deported in November 2008, following a DUI conviction.
So why was Hernandez even on the street that night?
The Daily Herald reported:
Lt. Craig Martinez with the Orem Department of Public Safety said Hernandez was cited for the misdemeanors by the Lindon police, but wasn't arrested or taken into custody because he wasn't driving at the time.
Why was he even in the country?
That's easy...Because President Obama refuses to secure the border, thus making deportations meaningless.
