Woman charged with West Side hit and run

A woman was arrested and charged Friday morning in a hit-and-run accident that killed a motorcyclist last month, records show.

Racine Rene Delgado, 36, faces a charge of nonstop and non-assistance resulting in death.

Jerry Alfaro, 54, was riding his motorcycle southbound on General McMullen on May 3. When he reached block 1700, a Delgado-registered Acura MDX struck the back of his motorcycle, causing it to lose control, according to an arrest. affidavit. Delgado then turned around and quickly fled, investigators said.

Alfaro was pronounced dead at the scene.

The affidavit states that Delgado was questioned by officers several days later and told them that her car was stolen by a woman she knew as “Victoria Savage”.

At first, Delgado told officers she didn’t know her vehicle had been stolen until a tattoo parlor employee called her and asked her why her vehicle was parked at a shopping mall on Military Drive, according to the affidavit.

But then Delgado changed her story and told officers she immediately called to report the vehicle was stolen, according to the affidavit.

According to the affidavit, the police spoke to the tattoo parlor employees and no one knew who Delgado was.

Investigators said surveillance footage of the mall parking lot showed a woman matching Delgado’s description entering the parking space where the vehicle was located. Phone records also placed Delgado at the crash site and at the mall, according to the affidavit.

Delgado’s bond was set at $ 150,000.

Developers propose high-rise residential building to replace office buildings on Eisenhower Avenue

At a Carlyle / Eisenhower East Design Review Board meeting on Thursday night, representatives from developer Mid-Atlantic Realty Partners presented plans to redevelop two medical office buildings into a high-rise multi-family residential building.

The site is located off Eisenhower Avenue between Mill Road and Elizabeth Lane. It is 4 blocks east of the Eisenhower Avenue subway station.

The proposed building, which will be called 2121 Eisenhower Ave., is divided into two phases. Each phase consists of the construction of a 24-storey L-shaped tower which will be connected by a six-storey parking garage.

The two towers will contain a total of 788 housing units, including 43 affordable units. The parking garage will have 712 parking spaces. A swimming pool and a furnished terrace will be located above the structure of the parking garage. The space shared between the towers will also serve to visually separate the height and mass of the two towers.

Some board members criticized the design of the building’s facade which, according to the architect, SK + I, will be either masonry or metal. The majority of members thought the design was too busy and disjointed, but otherwise approved of the height, mass and scale of the project. A motion passed approval of the height, mass and scale of the proposal, with the understanding that there will be significant work on the facade of the building before it is submitted to council for administration in August.
