NEW YORK (AP) - Police say an arrest has been made in a hit-and-run crash in New York City that killed a pregnant woman and her husband. The baby died the day after he was delivered by cesarean section.
New York City police say 44-year-old Julio Acevedo (ah-seh'-VAY'-doh) was arrested at a mini-mart in Bethlehem, Pa.
Police say Acevedo was going 60 mph - or twice the speed limit - in a BMW that hit a livery cab carrying Nachman (NAHK'-muhn) and Raizy Glauber (RAY'-zee GLOW'-bur) early Sunday. The parents-to-be were members of a close-knit ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn.
The wife was seven months pregnant. She was headed to a hospital because she wasn't feeling well.
Police spokesman Paul Browne says Acevedo had a drunken driving arrest in February.
It's not known if the suspect has an attorney.
