Yesterday evening, authorities took the second suspect into custody in connection with the recent hit-and-run accident that killed one USC student and left another seriously injured. 32-year-old Josue Luna was found "attempting to cross into the U.S. from the Mexican border when a computer alerted Border Patrol agents that he was wanted by the Los Angeles Police Department," according to an LAPD press release issued today. Agents from the LAPD fugitive unit "picked up Luna and transported him to 77th Division Jail for booking." Luna posted bail at noon today. His wife, Claudia Cabrera, 30, was arrested for her role in the accident that took the life Adrianna Bachan, 19, and injured Marcus Garfinkle, 18. Cabrera pleaded not guilty to the charges of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter and felony hit-and-run driving on April 6th. A memorial service for Bachan was held the following day.
