Drunk Driver Who Killed Texas Police Officer Runs & is Caught by Good Samaritan

Newly released video from the Lake Worth Police Department shows the man who killed a North Texas officer in a drunk driving crash trying to run away from the scene on that November 2021 day.

Within seconds, a bystander could be seen chasing after Dylan Molina before pinning him down on the ground. Other bystanders were also seen trying to help the victims of the crash, which included Euless police detective Alex Cervantes, his wife and two children.

Cervantes died, and his wife and children suffered critical injuries.

More than a year later, on Jan. 30, 2023, Molina pleaded guilty to intoxication manslaughter and three charges of intoxication assault. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

It was later revealed that on that Nov. 27, 2021, day, the 27-year-old Molina consumed eight double vodka cocktails within three hours at a Fuzzy’s Taco Shop in Lake Worth. His BAC was twice the legal limit, according to police.

Police said Molina ran a red light and hit off-duty detective Cervantes, who was driving with his family.

Good Samaritan stops suspect

Bystander Justin Gonzalez was identified as the man who stopped Molina.

He told WFAA he chased down Molina out of instinct after having just left a Thanksgiving gathering with family.

“I don’t know why it had to happen that it did,” Gonzalez said. “But I knew he wasn’t going anywhere. I couldn’t let him go.”

Gonzalez said he witnessed the horrific crash. “[Molina] was driving down at a high rate of speed. And I told my wife, I was like, ‘look at him,'” he said.

After stopping to help, Gonzalez said he wanted Molina to see what he had done.

“I’m like, ‘Come here. You can come. Come with me so you can come and see.’ And I turned around and when I turned around, I thought he was walking behind me. And then I just heard him take off running,” he said.

He said he was determined to not let Molina get away.

“I was on his tail. He wasn’t getting anywhere,” Gonzalez said. “I just had felt that something within me.”

“I think about what happened every day,” he added. “I was there for a reason for that day.”
