Las Vegas, NM – A drunk illegal alien with 4 prior DUIs has been charged with vehicular homicide after he veered into the vehicle of a couple from Colorado Springs who were driving to San Diego for their baby shower.
On June 10, Zach and Aileen Smith were traveling south on I-25 when an intoxicated, 43-year-old, illegal named Ramon Hernandez slammed into their vehicle. As a result of the collision, Aileen—who was 7 months pregnant—suffered severe injuries that required her to get an emergency C-section at a nearby medical center in Santa Fe.
Unfortunately for the Smiths, their first child would not make it. Just minutes after being delivered, their son died of massive head injuries and a bleeding brain.
“There was nothing they could do,” Aileen said. ”I woke up from surgery and was reaching out asking for my son, and the nurse leaned over and told me that he had passed.”
The Smiths named their son Demetri, after Aileen’s grandfather. They were able to hold him and take a few pictures with him before the hospital staff took him away.
According to the New Mexico authorites, Hernandez was convicted of DUI twice in 2000, once in 2003 and once again in 2004. He was also driving on a revoked license at the time of the crash due to multiple unpaid traffic tickets.
In other words, the government had every opportunity to remove this foreign criminal from the community, but they declined. And because they have decided they will only enforce laws they agree with, citizens like Zach and Aileen Smith are left to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives and somehow try to turn them back into a pursuit of happiness.
God help them.
Hernandez is currently being held in the San Miguel County Jail on a $25,000 cash bond.
