Drunk Driving Illegal Alien Crashes Into Family Car, Killing 2, Seriously Injuring 2

Perpetrator: Jonathon Narvaez-Pena

Crime Description:

On October 20, 2006 Antione Bumvu, 43, and Eddy Bumvu, 2 of Nashville, TN were killed by drunk driving, illegal alien Jonathan Narvaez-Pena, who ran a red light at the Murfreesboro Road-Bell Road intersection in Nashville and crashed into the Bumvu car. Bumvu's wife Josephine, 40, and his 6-month-old son, Tony, were also seriously injured. Bumvu’s 2-year-old daughter, Hillary Narvaez, received noncritical injuries in the accident. Altogether, Narvaez-Pena caused a six vehicles accident with eleven people being transported to area hospitals.

Narvaez-Pena has been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide by intoxication. He was previously arrested for driving without a license but local officials failed to report Narvaez-Pena to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for deportation as an illegal alien.

"Witnesses reported Narvaez-Pena was driving his Buick Park Avenue recklessly by speeding and running red lights as he traveled outbound on Murfreesboro Pike," authorities said. "He ran the red light at the Murfreesboro Road-Bell Road intersection and collided into the driver's side of a Ford Contour that was turning left onto Murfreesboro Road."

Narvaez-Pena admitted that he had 10 to 15 drinks of tequila before causing the wreck, a Metro police officer testified Thursday at the preliminary hearing.

Federal immigration officials placed a hold on him, Davidson County Sheriff's office spokeswoman Karla Crocker said.
