Man Showed Up at Work with Severed Arm of Victim He Killed During Car Crash in Texas; Arrested by Authorities

A Dallas man has been taken into custody following an unfortunate incident where a pedestrian lost their life due to a collision caused by drunk driving. Shockingly, the individual proceeded to drive to their workplace with a disturbing item in the passenger seat.

A 31-year-old individual named Juan Morgan Munoz has been arrested and charged by the Dallas Police Department. The charges include felony DWI and collision involving death. They also mentioned the possibility of additional charges.

According to reports from KDFW and WFAA, he was apprehended and transported to the Dallas County jail following his alleged attempt to escape the site of the tragic incident.

Despite calling 911 to notify authorities, Munoz reportedly waited over 30 minutes after the unidentified victim’s death before making the call, around 12:30 a.m early Saturday morning, as reported by KDFW.

According to reports from news outlets, the driver admitted to hitting the victim near Storey Lane and I-35E, but instead of stopping, they continued on their way to work about a mile away.

Authorities were dispatched to Munoz’s workplace at Maaco Auto Body Shop following Munoz’s phone call, as reported by the outlets. Reportedly, his white BMW was discovered with a damaged front passenger windshield and a complete arm resting on the front passenger seat, accompanied by traces of blood.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit reportedly obtained by the local news stations, he was also said to have “glassy/watery eyes, slurred speech, and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage.”

According to PEOPLE, Munoz’s breathalyzer test reportedly showed a reading of .179, which is more than double the legal limit.

According to reports, Munoz informed the officers that he had enjoyed a Patron shot earlier in the day and had visited a Hooters in Grand Prairie before going to work. According to WFAA, he was unable to pass any of the field sobriety tests administered to him.

Prior to his incarceration, Munoz allegedly confessed to having cocaine in his system, as reported by WFAA.

Authorities have yet to release the identity of the pedestrian who tragically lost their life.
