Fox 4 KDFW is reporting that one family may finally be getting justice after the hit-and-run driver who changed their lives was purportedly taken into custody near the U.S.-Mexico border:

“A North Texas woman who lost her unborn child in a hit-and-run crash last year is talking about what happened to her now that the suspect is finally in custody.

FOX 4 featured Victor Medina-Ramirez during a Trackdown segment earlier this year. He’s been wanted by Fort Worth police for the September crash that also injured a man and killed another woman.

“One of the victim’s family was told Tuesday night that U.S. Customs and Border agents arrested the 28-year-old near the southern border.

“During the past eight painful months, Abby and Christian Pearson say they, too, were watching Medina Ramirez on his social media accounts and sending information over to investigators.”

As previously reported by The Dallas Express, Ramirez fled the scene of a crash with another vehicle near Highway 121 South and the Sylvania Bridge in Fort Worth just after midnight on September 24. Meagan Roiter, 30, died of several blunt force injuries sustained in the collision, while another woman, who was driving, lost her unborn child.
