A mother of three young children was killed in a head-on crash in Phoenix Tuesday night. Police say the driver who slammed into her was drunk.
We were there as officers took him to jail. He driver arrested as soon as he was released from the hospital.
Police say the real victims are three kids who were waiting for their mom to come home last night and she never did.
Still wearing his hospital gown, 21-year-old Alejandro German was taken to jail, accused of driving drunk and killing a mother of three.
“The silver car was just torn to pieces,” says witness Don Hummel.
Police say German was driving a white van at 70 miles an hour down Indian School when he lost control, slamming head-on into the silver car.
“He admitted to speeding he also indicated that he had been drinking beers throughout the evening at a friend’s house,” said Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump.
The victim, a 30-year-old woman, died on scene.
When police tried to notify the 30-year-old’s family, they went to her house. Her three kids, 11, 6, and 7, were inside waiting for mom to come home.
Police had trouble finding an adult family member, so the kids were taken into state custody.
Police tell us they think they have found a family member. These kids have been through enough and they’re hoping to reunite them with family soon.
The victim was identified as Alma Dolores Moran Hernandez.
