From NBC Dallas-Fort Worth: (2015 article)
Investigators with the Dallas County Sheriff Department are searching for a man wanted in a deadly collision in November 2013.
Israel Moreira-Sorto, 26, is wanted on a charge of intoxication manslaughter.
Authorities said Moreira-Sorto was responsible for a chain-reaction crash on northbound Interstate 35E just south of Oak Lawn Avenue early in the morning of Nov. 16, 2013.
The crash killed Amanda Lizzio, who was outside her vehicle changing a flat tire at the time.
Moreira-Sorto was driving a white Toyota Celica and has been found at fault for the crash that caused Lizzio's death, investigators said.
Moreira-Sorto may have fled to El Salvador after the crash, and investigators are unsure if he has returned since.
Anyone with information that could help is asked to call the Dallas County Sheriff Department's Vehicle Crimes Unit at 214-589-2343 or 214-589-2335.

Thoughts? I must admit I'm taking a chance here since I haven't seen any articles since 2015 to confirm whether or not Sorto is still wanted. However, I couldn't find a case against him in Dallas County's online criminal court records so despite this being three years later I'm going to risk assuming he's probably still at large as of this posting date (10/23/2018). Of course, if anyone has any updates/proof-of-updates one way or the other, they are always more than welcome to let us know.
Apparently complicating matters if Sorto did indeed flee to El Salvador, According to a 100-year-old treaty with that country, Moreira-Sorto can't be extradited because intoxication manslaughter isn't a recognized crime specifically listed on the document. (at least in 2015)
Which as the detective interviewed in one of the links above states, is kind of ridiculous since there were no cars in 1911, and you're not going to have intoxicated manslaughter with a horse or bicycle.
However, this case is tragic and still deserves attention on the chance Sorto is still in or came back to the U.S. or (not holding my breath) one day El Salvador comes to their senses.
