SECOND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT Arrested This Week in North Carolina Hit-and-Run Accident
Antonio Arellano, is accused of hit-and-run causing serious injury, driving without a license, and reckless driving.
ABC 11 reported:
Federal immigration officials tell ABC11 a second illegal immigrant suspected of causing a serious wreck this week will not be allowed out of jail.
Earlier this week, the I-Team covered the return of Efren Roblero to the streets of Wake County.
Roblero is accused of driving drunk and causing a crash that injured two people over the weekend. He managed to post his $75,000 bond and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials approved his release from jail.
Now, another illegal immigrant, Antonio Arellano, is accused of hit-and-run causing serious injury, driving without a license, and reckless driving.
The woman he allegedly hit spoke to ABC11 Friday from her hospital bed at WakeMed where she is recovering from surgery.
“Just looked up and there’s a truck coming head on. I tried to swerve to avoid it, and there was nothing I could do,” said Stephanie Johnson.
Johnson says she heard about the release of Roblero on ABC 11 and feared Arellano might also get out of jail. She suspects Arellano might have been driving drunk.
However, that’s something investigators can’t prove since he wasn’t arrested until two days after the crash.
