An illegal immigrant is being charged with misdemeanor vehicular death after he allegedly killed an elderly North Carolina man by refusing to stop at a red light.
Ramiro Ramirez, a 44-year-old illegal immigrant, hit Lorine Jones and her husband George Milton Jones while driving past a red light at an exit ramp, according to the News Observer. Initially, Ramirez was charged with a traffic violation and driving without a license.
Both Lorine Jones and her husband George were taken to the hospital immediately following the accident, where Jones later died due to his injuries. Jones was 88-years-old. Lorine Jones is still recovering from the accident.
Ramirez turned himself into Wake County officials and is now being held at the local lockup. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has placed a detainer on the illegal immigrant, requesting that he be handed over to federal officials should he be released.
