NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The convicted felon wanted in the heartbreaking hit-and-run crash that killed a Brooklyn family said Tuesday he is considering surrendering.
But as of 11 p.m., there was no word of surrender from the suspect – 44-year-old Julio Acevedo, CBS 2’s Dick Brennan reported.
Police said Tuesday night that there was no deal for Acevedo to give himself up, and they are still seeking to arrest him.
In fact, police said they have had no dialogue with his attorney.
As CBS 2’s Alice Gainer reported, police identified Acevedo as the driver on Monday. They said he was going at least 60 mph early Sunday morning when his BMW collided with a livery cab carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, at Kent Avenue and Wilson Street in Williamsburg.
Acevedo then fled the scene, police said.
