A La Joya teenager is jailed in connection with the hit-and-run car crash death of an 8-year-old boy. McAllen police say 17-year-old Saul Aguirre was driving west on I-2 Sunday afternoon when his SUV plowed into the back of a van. Aguirre didn’t stop and kept heading west until he lost control of his vehicle and crashed on the frontage road near Taylor Road.
Police responding to the crash found four people hurt, including an 8-year-old boy who died of his injuries at the hospital. Aguirre could face charges of manslaughter or negligent homicide.
