Destiny Baker3 years ago

Crime Stoppers and Oak Farms Dairy are offering a combined reward of $15,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of two men involved in a fatal hit-and-run that left the son of a Cedar Hill police sergeant dead and the sergeant’s wife seriously injured.

About the Fatal North Texas Hit-and-Run

According to a FOX affiliate in Dallas, the suspects were fleeing police in a stolen vehicle when they crashed into another vehicle, killing 13-year-old Ethan Vasquez and critically injuring the boy’s mother Sandy Vasquez.

Ms. Vasquez is being treated in an area hospital for head injuries and internal injuries.

The pursuit began around 8:15 am Tuesday when Highland Park officers witnessed a blue Chrysler minivan run through a stop sign. Officers determined the vehicle was reported as stolen.

The chase continued into Dallas, but officers suspended pursuit due to safety concerns after the stolen vehicle traveled into a residential neighborhood. Sometime after, the still speeding van stuck the Vasquez’s vehicle at the intersection for Monticello Avenue and Homer Street.

Two men were seen fleeing the scene on foot.

Suspects Face Capital Murder Charges

The two men are facing capital murder charges as the killing of Ethan occurred while the suspects were committing other felonies.

Crime Stoppers is currently offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the suspects while Oak Farms Dairy offering $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of a suspect or suspects.

Anyone with information pertaining to the hit-and-run or the suspects is urged to contact police at 214-671-3661. Tips can also be submitted through Crime Stoppers at 214-373-TIPS (8477).

Firefighters and paramedics who have previously worked alongside Sgt. Vasquez went to the hospital where Sandy is recovering to offer their condolences Tuesday evening.
