NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities are looking for a man with a history of violence and substance issues who came barreling down a residential street at twice the speed limit in a car he didn't own and crashed into a pregnant woman and her husband. The crash killed them and ultimately the child they were expecting.
Police have identified the suspected driver as Julio Acevedo, and say he was speeding down the Brooklyn street at 60 mph early Sunday when he collided with another car carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21. They died Sunday, and their premature son died Monday.
Acevedo, 44, was arrested last month on a charge of driving while under the influence. The case is pending. He served about a decade in prison in the 1990s for manslaughter.
