Chesterfield County, VA _  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has filed a detainer on the two men charged in connection with a Chesterfield hit and run that left a 4-year-old boy dead and his parents and 7-year-old brother injured.

The crash occurred the afternoon of Saturday August 25 at the intersection of Belmont Road and Sue Jean Drive.

Police had initially arrested Edilberto Hernandez-Perez, 28,  but later determined that it was Hernandez-Perez's friend, Jose Gonzalez-Flores, 28,  who was driving the 2011 Dodge Ram Pickup that rammed into a stopped 2000 Toyota Camry, then left the scene.  Police say Gonzalez-Flores later abandoned the truck and went to Hernandez-Perez, who drove his friend home.

An ICE spokesman says in a statement that Hernandez-Perez is a Guatemalan national who is in the U.S. illegally.  Gonzalez-Flores' immigration status is unclear.
