MX Man Bionel Cervin-Gomez Arrested In FL Hit-And-Run That Killed 22 Year Old’s Unborn Baby

HAINES CITY, FL. (THECOUNT) — Bionel Cervin-Gomez has been identified as the suspect arrested in a deadly hit-and-run crash in Haines City, Florida, on February 9, 2019.

Cervin-Gomez, 48, a previously deported “illegal immigrant,” was arrested and charged after leaving the scene of a tragic crash that injured a pregnant woman and led to the death of her unborn child, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

The 22-year-old mother-to-be was eight months pregnant.

The suspect was captured Saturday in the area of 2600 Watson Road in Haines City, the sheriff’s office said.

It is believed he left the scene of a three-car crash on Feb. 9 on Highway 17/92 in Davenport. An unborn child died because of the trauma the 22-year-old mother suffered, reported WTSP.

Cervin-Gomez reportedly told deputies he fled the scene of the crash because he “did not have a driver’s license.”

“Ultimately, this man caused a baby’s death,” officials said in a news release. “His actions on the road ended a pregnancy in the eighth month.”

Cervin-Gomez is charged with leaving the scene of a crash with great bodily injury or death and driving without a license causing death or great bodily injury.

The sheriff’s office notified the Department of Homeland Security because of Cervin-Gomez living in the country illegally, the news release states.

He previously was deported to Mexico in 2000, the sheriff’s office says.
