Man charged with manslaughter after Fort Worth police say speeding caused fatal accident


A 22-year-old man has been arrested and charged with manslaughter after Fort Worth police said he caused a traffic accident that killed 39-year-old Raul Ramos-Mejia.

Police arrested Richland Hills Roberto Jeremiah Rivera Jr. after they said he was “driving at high speed” in his BMW on July 25 when he hit Ramos-Mejia’s Mitsubishi as Ramos-Mejia was making a turn.

Police said Rivera was driving west at 2300 block of East Rosedale Street in Fort Worth around 6:30 a.m. on July 25, while Ramos-Mejia was driving east in the same area. Ramos-Mejia was turning north toward Griggs Avenue when his Mitsubishi was hit by Rivera’s car, police said.
