Toddler Killed, Georgetown Man Charged with DUI

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del. (WBOC/AP)- A Delaware man has been charged in a car crash that killed a 2-year-old girl and injured two others.

Delaware State Police said the crash occurred Saturday night on eastbound John J. Williams Highway in Lewes when a Mazda Protege, driven by 24-year-old Henry Roblero-Mazariegos, rear-ended a Chevrolet Trailblazer that had stopped to make a left-hand turn into a private driveway.

A 2-year-old girl inside the Mazda, identified as Genesis Valasequez-Santizo, of Georgetown, was thrown from her car seat. She was transported to Beebe Medical Center where she was pronounced dead due to traumatic injuries.

The 19-year-old driver of the Chevrolet Trailblazer was not injured in the crash, police said. However, troopers said his two passengers: a 17-year-old male and a 21-year-old male, both of Lewes, were taken to Beebe for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.  

Police said Roblero-Mazariegos, also of Georgetown, was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision. He has been charged with second-degree vehicular homicide, two counts of second-degree vehicular assault, DUI, driving while suspended or revoked, and child under 8 and less than 65 pounds must be in a child restraint. 

He is being held in the Sussex Correctional Institution on $13,001 cash bond.

No phone listing could be found for him, and it wasn't clear if he had a lawyer.
