2-Arrested In Rachel Spelman Hit/Run Death

Two people were arrested out of state in connection to the fatal hit-and-run of a woman in Uptown Dallas.

Rachel Spelman was hit while crossing Cedar Springs Road early Saturday morning. Friends believe the 23-year-old was heading home after a night out at the time.

Police said 29-year-old John Adrian Esparza hit Spelman and then took off. A second vehicle may have also hit her.

Detectives were looking for a gray 2012 or 2013 Hyundai Sonata with a broken passenger-side headlight and damage to the front end.

Sources told FOX 4 one of Esparza’s relatives called police with a tip about his whereabouts. His car was located overnight at a hotel in Madill, Okla. and both he and a woman were taking into custody.

Esparza reportedly confessed that he had been drinking Saturday at the Concrete Cowboy, not far away from where Spelman was hit.

He is being held in the Marshall County jail until he can be returned to Dallas to face charges. It is not yet clear if the woman he was with will face any charges. Source: FOX4NEWS
