A second construction worker has died from his injuries after a van slammed into five construction workers on Route 29.Well, isn't that special. What a good little boy for turning himself in. Congratulations, and may you spend many years behind bars.
Montgomery County Police say 37-year-old James Cronin of Glen Burnie died Tuesday. On Monday, Cronin was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.
Police say the driver of the van, 31-year-old Manuel De Jesus Gonzalez-Geronimo, turned himself in at around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Gonzalez-Geronimo, of Hyattsville, was charged with failure to immediately return and remain at the scene of a collision involving death, failure to immediately stop a vehicle at the scene of a collision involving bodily injury, and driving without a license.
He is being held without bond at the Montgomery County Detention Center. Police say Gonzalez-Geronimo could face additional charges.
Prosecutors say Gonzalez-Geronimo has also admitted to being in the country illegally for seven years. He is originally from Guatemala.
I wonder what Geraldo would say. That this an issue for the DMV, or MDOT, or some other such nonsense. Here's the deal: He should not have been in this country in the first place. And until we secure our borders, more people are going to die because of these criminals.
