On Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at approximately 11:29 p.m., the Arlington Police Department responded to a major crash in the 7800 block of S. Cooper Street.

Officers arrived on scene and found a motorcyclist who was severely injured. The victim, a 50-year old man, was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

The driver of the vehicle that struck the motorcycle fled the scene on foot immediately following the crash.

Officers later located the suspect in the area and he was subsequently arrested for Failure to Stop and Render Aid and Intoxication Manslaughter after officers determined he was impaired during the crash.

Investigators believe that the motorcycle was traveling northbound on S. Cooper Street when the suspect attempted to turn left from 1200 Sturgeon Court and failed to yield right of way to the motorcycle operator.

The suspect has been identified as Felipe Venegas Ramos, a 28-year old man. 

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office will identify the deceased once next of kin have been notified.
