Cops: Drunk Driver Kills Mother Of Two
Cops in Florida are trying to track down Roman Saldarriaga - a teen who they say was driving drunk when he slammed into another car, pusing into oncoming traffic and killing the driver.
On Sept. 1, 2003, officials say Saldarriaga was on his way to a friend's house in Naples, Fla. when he tried to pass a truck on a two-lane road and knocked a car into the path of a truck in the other lane. Janelle Hail, a mother of two, died at the scene, entagled in the wreckage of the crash.
At the scene of the crash, investigators found empty beer cans inside Saldarriaga's car. When cops asked him about the evidence they found, Saldarriaga confessed that he had five or six beers.
Then, cops took a blood sample, and when the results came back, they weren't surprised. Saldarriaga's blood-alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit. But before cops could throw him behind bars, Saldarriaga managed to take off. He hasn't been seen since.
Thoughts? According to his archive, Saldarriaga was aired on the September 10th, 2005 and December 3rd, 2005 episode of America's Most Wanted. And yes, DUI and Florida AGAIN. I swear I'm just adding as many old amw.com cases as I can before we shift our focus to the season 2 of The Hunt. I am selecting all cases at RANDOM and still get a DUI Florida manslaughter case every day. *sigh*
Also, the AMW archive no longer has a profile but the FDLE wanted search system did. Once again fugitives come in all shapes and sizes but I think Saldarriaga is Hispanic despite being listed as white by FDLE. It's just a lot of law enforcement sites usually just only classify white or black for fugitives and by that definition Hispanics are considered white. Only mentioning this since tip-wise it should be stressed Saldarriaga could be in a Spanish-speaking country.
