** UPDATED 10/6/2011 ** Police are requesting aid in locating the suspect, 27 year old Marvin Perez. He is a Hispanic male, 5’6″ tall, and he weighs around 160 lbs. Anybody with information as to his whereabouts should call the Irving Police department at 972-273-1010 **
** ORIGINAL POST **
A seven year old little girl and her 57 year old friend are in serious condition at a local hospital after a speeding Mazda hopped a curb, struck the pair, and fled the scene.
Little Tinniyah Miles and family friend Alberta Sago were just leaving the hair salon when the car accident occurred. The Mazda driver was speeding the wrong direction along Grauwlyer Road. His car jumped the curb and hit the two ladies. Witness report that young Tinniyah was thrown 20 feet, and Alberta was dragged by the vehicle over 50 feet. The Mazda sped off without stopping.
The Mazda was pursued by a witness. After three miles of chase, the hit and run driver pulled his vehicle over, emerged, and began making threatening gestures toward the witness. Believing the Mazda driver may be in possession of a gun, the witness broke off pursuit at that point, and the Mazda drove away.
Thankfully, police say they know exactly who to arrest. While they aren’t releasing that information right now, they expect to have the perpetrator under arrest soon. Once apprehended, he’ll be charged with two counts of felony hit and run. His defense attorney will probably need to be ready for a civil suit also, as a car accident lawyer will definitely be available to help the injured ladies receive compensation from him.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Tinniyah and Alberta. Hopefully they will recover quickly from their injuries and put this nightmare behind them.
Drive safely, Dallas!
