DALLAS – A Richardson man who is accused of killing a one-year-old boy in a
hit-and-run crash last month has been arrested, according to Dallas Police.
Earlier this month, S. Flynn, 42, was extradited from East Texas and charged
with failure to stop and render aid, and
The defendant allegedly ran a red light on the night of Jan. 11 and ran
his Dodge pickup into a Toyota Camry at the intersection of Chimney Hill
Lane and Audelia Road. After the collision, he got out of his truck and
fled the scene on foot, said the police.
The one-year-old boy, N. Ramirez, was sitting in the back seat of the Camry.
He was seriously injured and transported to a nearby hospital. He died
of his injuries on Jan. 14.
Eyewitnesses told the police that they had seen the Dodge speed past them
and run through other red lights before crashing into the Camry.
The police investigation led to a woman who told the detectives that the
defendant had been drinking alcohol at her apartment on the night of the
crash on Jan. 11, according to his arrest warrant affidavit.
She told the detectives that later that evening, he returned to her apartment
and told her that he had been involved in an accident. When she asked
if he checked to see if anyone in the other vehicle was hurt, he told her no.
The woman told the police that the defendant took off and waited until
things died down before paying someone $100 to bring him back to her apartment.
The U.S. Marshals Service hunted down the defendant and found him in East
Texas, where he was extradited to North Texas, said Dallas police. The
defendant, who has a history of burglary of a habitation, evading arrest,
and drug possession, is being held in Dallas County Jail in lieu of $200,000 bail.
