Vehicle hits, kills pregnant Guatemalan immigrant, young son in Juarez


A pregnant Guatemalan immigrant and her young son died after being hit by a vehicle in Juarez on Thursday.

The crash happened in South Juarez as the pair was en route to the U.S. 

Juarez police say Celeste Monterroso, 24, and her son, 5, were crossing the street when they were hit by an SUV with Texas plates.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

The Guatemalan consulate confirmed Monterroso’s citizenship, and notified her husband of the deaths of his wife, son, and unborn child.
