BROOKLYN - Published reports say the driver accused in a hit-and-run that killed a young Brooklyn couple and their baby will turn himself in.
Julio Acevedo told the New York Daily News that his heart goes out to the victims and that he didn't know they died until he saw the reports.
According to investigators, 44-year-old Julio Acevedo, of 177 Sands St. in Brooklyn, was behind the wheel of a BMW that slammed into a livery cab carrying 21-year-olds Nathan and Raizy Glauber early Sunday morning. Investigators say he was driving at least 60 mph.
Acevedo is no stranger to breaking the law. Police say he spent nearly a decade in prison for manslaughter and was arrested for DWI just last month. Other prior arrests include robbery, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.
The Glaubers' baby was delivered prematurely by cesarean section, but died the next day.
