Widow of slain rancher struck by hit and run drunk driver

Just six months after the March 27 murder of Cochise County rancher Robert Krentz on his property by a still unapprehended illegal alien, his widow, Sue, has sustained serious injuries after police say a drunk driver struck her while she crossed the street outside her Douglas church. She was thrown 30 feet by the impact.

Douglas police report that Ramon Parra Saucedo, 66, struck Sue Krentz and her friend Shirley Gregory as they crossed the street about 6 p.m. Saturday evening outside St. Luke’s Catholic Church. Saucedo, who fled the scene, was apprehended a short time later and was booked into Cochise County Jail on suspicion of DUI, endangerment and aggravated assault. The women were airlifted to University Medical Center in Tucson.

Sue Krentz reportedly sustained multiple injuries including a lacerated spleen, internal bleeding, broken ribs, broken leg, fractured pelvis, head trauma, and facial fractures. A family friend and neighbor said. “She’s in pretty bad shape,” as he described her going in and out of consciousness. Mrs. Krentz has undergone surgery for her injuries.

    After Rob Krentz’s horrific murder drew national attention to our insecure and easily penetratable border, John McAmnesty jumped aboard the issue in order to be reelected. Of course, it’s all a farce intended to give him another SIX YEARS in the US Senate to revert to his old actions against the citizens of this state and county. I don’t know if Señor Saucedo is legal or illegal, but his crime and then leaving the scene shines a bright light on the issue. My heart breaks for what the Krentz family has endured these past six months.

    The liberal press certainly isn’t saying if Saucedo is legal or not and you can be sure they know by now. When will people wake up and realize that the illegals are killing more of us than the terrorists and wars put together.

    This is such sad news, this poor widow has had enough.

    […] His suspected illegal alien killer is still on the loose. A tragic update: His widow, Sue, was struck by a drunk driver after church services yesterday in Douglas. Please keep the family in your continued prayers. Posted in: […]

    Our prayers go out to Mrs. Krentz and family.

    Legal or illegal, DUI is a way of life for Hispanics. Take a look at this report from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the National Latino Council on Alcohol and Tobacco Prevention (LCAT) in which they acknowledge the serious problem. The charts and graphs are also attention grabbing!

    Frankly:
    I am disgusted looking over this report. As might be expected in these self-focused groups, the National Latino Council on Alcohol and Tobacco Prevention (LCAT), worries not about the overall death rates CAUSED by DUI Hispanics, but instead concentrated on reducing alcohol impaired driving traffic fatalities and injuries WITHIN Latino populations. That’s a great indicator of how integrated into American society they are. And as a solution, the group want to lower blood alcohol concentrations (BAC) standards. What a response to this community problem! It’s akin to advocating that armed and dangerous bank robbers shouldn’t be charged if they take less than $50,000 — especially if they’re Hispanic.

  7. Blackbeard says:

    So does the National Latino Council on Alcohol and Tobacco Prevention also advocate lowering the blood alcohol levels for non-Hispanics? This entire concept is infuriating.

  8. AHARD says:

    I worked in the justice system for years and can tell you the illegal dui defendants almost always do not take classes, pay their fines or serve their time when they have the ability to leave the jurisdiction. They have no insurance, their plates are often stolen or they have Mexican plates. It is a mess.

    And to boot, we let them send billions home in remittances to further deepen our economic problems.

  9. Steve says:

    Surprise! In 2006, the 11 jurisdictions with the highest number of Latino alcohol-related traffic fatalities were California, Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, Arizona, New Mexico, Illinois, North Carolina, Georgia, Colorado, and South Carolina.

    All are either border states with high concentrations of illegals or the states where many secondarily head after criminally breaking and entering into our homeland.

    Since this information is four years old, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Utah and Nevada more recently added to the list.
