This happens way to often around here. This accident happened a few miles from me last weekend and this is not a rare occurrence. We have a HUGE problem with illegals. I checked our our county jail website which lists prisoners and their offenses and I would guess 60% or more were hispanic. Considering the hispanic population in the community of around 5% I would constitute this as a problem.
Note that Mr. Hernandeez was deported in 2008 for a DUI offense. If you think the border is secure I have a few thousand miles of beach front property I can sell you in Nebraska.

A man accused of running over and killing a woman who was sitting on the sidewalk Sunday may have been driving with a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit.
Ramiro Serrano Hernandez, 26, was booked into the Utah County Jail Sunday after police say he hit and killed Ashlee Zimmer, 22. During two Breathalyzer tests, Hernandez blew a 0.169 on one attempt and 0.192 on the other, according to a police affidavit filed in 4th District Court. The legal limit is 0.08.
“It’s baffling to me that somebody who has been drinking will even risk it and jump behind the wheel. So you got a guy who makes a decision one early Sunday morning. And because of that single decision, it’s going to change not only his life but a lot of people’s lives forever,” Martinez said. “So a split second, stupid decision to get behind the wheel to do who knows what, meaning he probably wasn’t going anywhere important, I don’t know where he was going, but I never understand it. It just doesn’t make any sense.”
Earlier in the evening, Hernandez had been cited by police for being drunk and disorderly, Martinez said. He reportedly had been drinking at a wedding but was not driving at that time. After someone drove him home, however, he apparently decided to go out again, this time behind the wheel of a Jeep Cherokee, police said.
About 1:30 a.m. Sunday near 844 N. 100 West, Hernandez made “an abrupt left turn in the middle of the block,” striking a parked vehicle before hitting Zimmer who was sitting on the sidewalk, according to the police affidavit.
“Hernandez’s vehicle continued over the sidewalk, through a 3-foot-high vinyl fence, across about a 10-foot section of (grass), over a cement curbing, through about a 4-foot section of landscaping and into the glass windows of a business. Tire track evidence at the scene shows the suspect vehicle backed up once and then forward, hitting into the business a second time,” the affidavit states.
Zimmer’s husband rushed out of the house after hearing the collision and pounded on Hernandez’s window to get him to turn off his vehicle after he spotted his wife underneath the rear of the car, police said.
Hernandez got out of the Jeep and ran. He was found by officers a short distance away hiding behind a Dumpster, according to the affidavit. When officers took him into custody, “his eyes were bloodshot. There was also a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath. Hernandez was unsteady on his feet,” police wrote
He was arrested for investigation of automobile homicide, two counts of leaving the scene of an accident and driving on an expired license. Monday in 4th Distinct Court, bail was set at $500,000 cash only for Hernandez and an immigration hold was placed on him while federal officials checked his status.
Hernandez allegedly told police he was deported to Mexico in 2008 after being arrested for DUI in 2008 by Pleasant Grove police. In May, Hernandez was cited for driving without a valid license, according to Utah state court records.
