Police are searching for a man they suspect of causing a car accident in New York that killed a man and his pregnant wife on March 3. Police suspect Julio Acevedo of crashing into the car and killing Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, and their unborn child. The driver of the car was injured but survived.
Police arrested Acevedo, 44, earlier this year on drunk driving charges. Police claim that in this second accident, Acevedo was driving a BMW down a busy street in Brooklyn at 60 mph when he collided into the Glaubers’ car on March 3 before fleeing the scene. A nearby hospital delivered the baby, but doctors pronounced the child dead a short time later.
Acevedo has a previous history of violence as he was convicted of shooting a man to death in 1990; he served nearly 10 years in jail.
“We in the community are demanding that the prosecutor charge the driver of the BMW that caused the death of this couple and infant be charged with triple homicide,” said Isaac Abraham, leader of a community center in the neighborhood. “This coward left the scene of the accident not even bothering to check on the people of the other car.”
It seems as though Acevedo has demonstrated a pattern of reckless behavior, and he should be considered a threat to the general public, as well as himself. IF the allegations about his involvement in the fatal accident are true, he does not deserve the opportunity to harm anyone else again after this incident.
