|Jaquinn Ramone Bell drove the vehicle that killed the girls, according to police.|
The driver who struck the girls "probably knew they hit something," judging from the damage to the vehicle, according to Santa Ana Police Chief Carlos Rojas, who also explained it was difficult to track down Bell as he had many past addresses, his last known one being in Orange.
Among the two adults with Bell when he was arrested about 11:30 a.m. Sunday at Motel 6, 7450 Katella Ave., Stanton, was his mother, Rojas noted. She, another adult and two children were later released.More »
