Authorities say a drunken driver injured two women in a head-on collision in Metairie on Saturday, then fled the scene. Deputies later arrested Jesus Guzman-Gomez, 22, of Metairie, an arrest report said.
Guzman-Gomez was headed westbound in a maroon Jeep Cherokee when he veered inexplicably into the eastbound lanes, an arrest report said.
Guzman-Gomez's vehicle crashed head-on into a red Jeep Cherokee being driven by an unidentified 49-year-old woman, Fortunato said. He then drove off without stopping or identifying himself, the report said.
The driver of the red Jeep Cherokee suffered head, neck and back injuries, the arrest report said. The woman's 21-year-old daughter was in the passenger seat and suffered severe injuries to her right side, the report said.
Based on descriptions given by the victims, deputies caught up with the suspect three blocks away on Cypress Street at Cleary Avenue, Fortunato said. Guzman-Gomez performed poorly on a field sobriety test. His blood alcohol was .135%, over the .08% legal limit, the report said.
Guzman-Gomez, of 8114 Buras St., Metairie, was booked Saturday with DWI, hit and run, two counts of vehicular negligent injuring, reckless operation of a vehicle, driving with no license and operating a vehicle with no legal presence in the United States. Bond was set at $7,650, but he was released Monday without bond because crowding at the jail.

“he veered inexplicably into the eastbound lanes”
I think I can explain it.
Bad day to be a Jeep Cherokee...
Just think how the mother/daughter would have fared in a Yugo...
And people look at me like I am stupid for driving a full framed 3/4 ton truck.
When nobody enforces the law, why would any scumbag respect the law?
Did he drop his pants and moon the cops as he sauntered out of jail?
Good luck. A guy I work with had a daughter who got married and the wedding party was on their way to the reception when a drunk illegal crashed into the groom’s parents car, killing them both. The judge set bail at $10,000. He jumped bail and no one knows where he is.
they are tough as nails....good day to be in one I'd say....headon and one drives away, noone killed....my kind of vehicle!!
He jumped bail and no one knows where he is.”
Six feet under would be only appropriate place.
I’d fear this would be down as in south of the border.
Just doing the jobs Americans wont do.
Hmm. Two Cherokees involved. Paging Elizabeth Warren!
Thanks for the ping....just another day in illegalalienville, USA.
