Driver Suspected In NY Crash Has Troubled Past March 5, 2013 1:04 pm

Police identified the suspected driver as Julio Acevedo, and said he was speeding down the Brooklyn street in a BMW at 60 mph early Sunday when he collided with another car carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21. They died Sunday, and their premature son died Monday.
