Blood On Car Bumper Dead Giveaway For Hit-And-Run Suspect

LANCASTER (CBS) — A 50-year-old man was fatally struck by a suspected drunken driver, who police later nabbed at a checkpoint after noticing blood on his car’s bumper.

Police detained 25-year-old Isidro Peralta, of Littlerock, after deputies at a drunken driving and license checkpoint noticed his Ford Mustang had blood on the bumper and a shattered windshield.

Officers later found Curley Junior Ross’s body on 10th Street West near Avenue J-8 and booked Peralta on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter and felony driving under the influence, deputies said.

    “drunken driving”???? Really? Did you mean “sobriety”? Oh, ok.

      You can either check for sobriety or drunkenness. English snobs are back at it….

      • Trisha

        I wouldn’t refer to us as “English snobs”. Educated people would be more accurate.

      Another drunk $pic, whats new. Tie him in his vehicle and set it on fire and run him off the cliff. If we start doing that, drunk driving will go down.

    Suck hatred and bigotry!

    You racist, naive, ill-bred “Americans”…always need some sort of scapegoat to point the finger at . You need people like [us]. You need people like [us] so you can point your f***ing fingers and say, “That’s the bad guy.” So… what that make you? Good? You’re not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie.

    No gracias yo no quiero assimulate pero assimilate alomejor si.

    • Chris

      I think you meant to say “our laws”, not “are laws” and
      “assimilate”, not “assimulate”.
      Thank you, though, for saying the the person who was arrested was “probably….etc” rather than stating it as a fact.

  • WEst Do
