Wife of the Ulysses Police Department. Alejandro “Alex” Cervantes, who was injured in a getaway with a suspected drunk driver Saturday, is getting better in hospital, according to the Ulises Police Department Chief.
Cervantes’ wife has yet to regain consciousness since the accident, but her condition has been upgraded from critical to stable, according to Jules boss Mike Brown. He said he is expected to make a full recovery.
Brown said his two sons, who were in the car at the time of the accident, were with family members. They know that their father was murdered.
Brown told reporters on Thursday he would make sure Cervantes’ children know exactly who their father is.
“An old man like me would like to have a son just like him. He’s the kind of man who comes every day with a true heart to serve his fellow, someone I don’t think has met a stranger before.” “He would go out of his way to make sure he knows you, connects with you on some level, he’s just a great guy. If you are a child, you are very fortunate to have a father like him.”
Euless Police said the accident occurred at approximately 1:33 p.m. at the intersection of Pot Club Road and the Rocky Point Trail in Lake Worth.
Police said the driver of the Jeep Wrangler, 26-year-old Dylan Molina, ran a red light and collided with a Cervantes-driven Chevy Impala.
Police said Molina was charged with manslaughter due to intoxication, one murder and three counts of drunken assault. His bond was set Monday at $300,000.
Cervantes served in the Ulis Police Department for nearly seven years, prior to which he worked eight years in the El Paso Police Department.
