Truck that fatally struck a Dallas 3-year-old found in Irving


Irving, Texas. February 10, 2019

Dallas police say the pickup truck that hit and killed a 3-year-old boy has been recovered in Irving, but they are still searching for the driver.

Ramon Garcia-Ruiz, 24, is the owner of the truck and police believe he was behind the wheel when the boy was hit and killed. Witnesses say the driver never slowed down.

The pickup was found Monday night on a side street near Highway 183 and East Grauwyler Road. Police say the tags had been removed.

An Irving woman spotted the black pick-up truck. She says she noticed it on Sunday because it was parked along the street curb where her husband normally parks his car. She called 911 and, sure enough, it was the pickup truck Dallas police detectives had been searching for.

Investigators went to Ruiz-Garcia's last known address in Irving, but he wasn't there.

Ruiz-Garcia's neighbor says he hasn't seen him in days. Investigators are worried he may flee to Mexico where he has family.
