Police: Drunken off-duty firefighter kills pregnant 18-year-old, unborn baby in crash

An off-duty Dallas firefighter is accused of killing a pregnant teenager and her unborn child early Wednesday in a crash in nearby Cedar Hill.

The unnamed firefighter was driving a Mercedes-Benz south on U.S. Highway 67 around 12:45 a.m. when he rear-ended a Mazda SUV, according to the Dallas Morning News. The driver of the Mazda, Alyssa Pimentel, 18, and her passenger were both ejected by the impact.

Pimentel and her unborn child died at the scene, the newspaper reported. Her male passenger, who Pimentel’s father identified as her boyfriend, was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.

The firefighter and his passenger were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police investigators believe the firefighter was under the influence of alcohol and speeding at the time of the crash. 

Pimentel’s father told WFAA-TV that his daughter’s baby boy, whom she planned to name Josiah, was due next month. She had just picked up her boyfriend from work when the crash occurred.

The boyfriend has a broken neck, Pimentel’s father told the news station.

Pimentel identified her boyfriend on her Facebook page as Isaiah Perez.

Pimentel’s father described his daughter as a “sweetheart,” a kind and caring person who would do anything for people. 

Family members mourned Pimentel on social media.

“I’m going to miss you, my beautiful niece,” Mary Flores Pimentel wrote from Chandler, Arizona. “You will always be in my heart.”

KDFW Fox 4 in Dallas reported that the name of the firefighter has yet to be released, but investigators said he faces an intoxication manslaughter charge in Pimentel’s death.

Thieves steal doors off car overnight, police say

The thieves knew exactly what they wanted - a couple of doors from a 2014 Toyota Camry- -- and it only took a few minutes to take them.

"It was just bizarre," car owner Ann Carmody told WBAL. "It was so bizarre that I almost started laughing. Like, who loses their doors?" 

Unscrupulous body shops will contract with thieves to take specific parts needed for a job, Tom Reich, a special agent with the National Insurance Crime Bureau told WMAR

“They come in the middle of the night they find both right here close, they grab them and they're off and you're talking maybe five minutes of work to get both doors off the car," Reich said.

In this case, the two passenger doors were removed late Saturday or early Sunday morning and nothing else was taken, according to WMAR

The Carmody’s insurance will replace the doors. Neighbors set up a GoFundMe to help the Carmodys buy security cameras. Neighbors also helped the Carmodys clean up the mess the thieves left behind and offered to give her and her husband, a disabled veteran, rides.

“It amazed me,” Carmody told WMAR. “This happening introduced me to all these neighbors that I had said hi to but never really knew and now I'm close to a lot of neighbors, so a lot of good came out of it.”
