Alexander Perez Dies After Being Struck By Car

bus-accidentIn a tragic accident on Emerson Street, Alexander Torralba Perez, a 10-year-old student, was struck by a Toyota Rav4 on Emerson Street.

Perez had just gotten off a school bus when he was struck by the SUV. The accident occurred at nearly 3:30 p.m. on his way home from Konnoak Elementary School.

Law enforcement officials have identified the driver of the truck as Imani Louise Stanley, a 21-year-old from Winston, Salem.

Stanley veered from the road and struck Perez before crashing into a fence and a small tree. Law enforcement officials report that she ran away from the scene, but was later found and arrested.

She has been charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle. She also failed to stop after the accident and so she was also charged with felony hit-and-run. She was arrested under a bond of $35,000.

Tragically, young Perez died from his injuries at Wake Forest Baptists Medical Center. We send our deepest condolences to the Perez family and their friends.

There is nothing more tragic then having a child fatally injured by a negligent driver.
