In the northern burbs of Dallas Texas,  an illegal alien fled the scene of an accident that left an infant dead. 24-year-old Gerardo Moreno faces felony charges for manslaughter,  as well as failure to stop and render aid, driving without a license, driving without insurance.

The toddler was sitting in her 17-year-old mother’s lap in the front passenger seat as Moreno slowly drove a 4-door pickup south in an alley in the 3100 block of Webb Chapel Extension behind an apartment complex at 8:50 p.m., police said. Moreno told police he was looking at a vehicle coming up behind him in his rearview mirror when the truck drifted to the right and struck a utility pole.

Maldonado turned himself in after police contacted him on his cellphone. He was being held Monday at the Dallas County Jail.
