An illegal alien DoorDash driver has been charged in a high-speed car crash that killed a female passenger and her 3-year-old daughter in Pennsylvania last month, authorities say.
The horrifying incident unfolded just after 1 a.m. on January 13 in Upper Merion, a township near Philadelphia, according to a press release issued on Wednesday by Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele.
Local authorities arrived at the scene of a single-vehicle accident where they found the suspect, identified as 22-year-old Brayan Alejandro Gonzalez-Paez, tending to an unresponsive toddler whose mother was trapped inside a badly damaged 2007 Toyota Yaris.
Anjelica Guadalupe Amaya Briceno, 20, was extricated from the Yaris and pronounced dead at the scene.
Her 3-year-old daughter was rushed to a local children’s hospital, where she was also pronounced deceased.
Investigators determined Gonzalez-Paez was likely traveling between 70 and 80 mph in a 35 mph zone in heavy rain when he lost control at a bend in the road and ultimately slammed into a tree.
No car seat was found inside the vehicle, and all seatbelts had apparently been connected behind the passengers in order to disarm safety warning alerts.
The vehicle was not register to Gonzalez-Paez, who claimed he had obtained it via private sale but had not filed transfer paperwork.
The car was also not insured and Gonzalez-Paez was not in possession of a valid driver’s license, despite telling officers he had a license issued in Venezuela, which was not located on his person or in the vehicle.
Gonzalez-Paez reportedly told officers he was following directions on a DoorDash app when another car ‘came out of nowhere’ and passed him, causing him to apply his brakes and lose control in the slick conditions.
“Det. Michael Henricks, of the Montgomery County Detective Bureau and assigned as a Task Force Officer (TFO) with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) checked the Homeland Security Investigations databases for information on Gonzalez Paez,” states a criminal complaint against the suspect.
“Det. Henricks learned that Gonzalez Paez entered the United States illegally from Mexico on May 5, 2023 and was appended by HSI agents. Gonzalez Paez is currently on HSI parole awaiting a deportation hearing.”
An investigation and legal proceedings are ongoing.
