The man who plowed into a young couple on their way to the hospital for a pregnancy check-up – turned himself into police.
Julio Acevedo, who for three days had eluded capture by the police, surrendered on Wednesday into the custody of plainclothes New York City detectives in the parking lot of a convenience store in Bethlehem, Pa. There, the officers placed Mr. Acevedo under arrest, charging him with fleeing the scene of a devastating hit-and-run crash that killed a young pregnant woman, Raizy Glauber, and her husband, Nathan, who were riding in a livery cab. After the crash, their son was delivered three months premature; he died the next day. The police would identify Mr. Acevedo as the driver of the BMW. The police have said that Mr. Acevedo, who served time in prison for a 1987 killing and had a pending court date on a drunken-driving charge, was speeding at the time of the crash and that he had borrowed the BMW.
