Man wanted in Fort Worth crash that killed woman, unborn child arrested in El Paso

A man wanted in a car crash that killed a woman and another couple’s unborn child was arrested, according to Fort Worth jail records.

Victor Medina-Ramirez, 28, was booked into the city jail Wednesday on a charge of hit and run resulting in death, a second-degree felony.

According to Fort Worth police, Medina-Ramirez was driving a vehicle in the early morning of September 24 when he struck another vehicle at Airport Freeway and North Sylvania Avenue. He left the scene on foot before officers arrived, police said.

The crash killed a passenger in the other vehicle, 30-year-old Meagan Roiter.

The driver, Abby Pearson, and her husband, who was a passenger in the back seat, were both hospitalized. Abby learned she lost her unborn child while in intensive care, KDFW-TV reported.

The family of one of the victims was told that U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents arrested Medina-Ramirez Tuesday evening in El Paso and he was transferred to North Texas, according to the report. More charges could follow, the Pearsons’ attorney says.
