Fugitive hit-and-run suspect caught after Davenport crash

Polk County deputies have arrested a fugitive hit-and-run suspect who fled after a crash in early February. 

Deputies located and arrested 48-year-old Bionel Cervin-Gomez on Saturday. 

He's accused of fleeing from a crash that occurred on February 9 on Highway 17-92 at Shamrock Road in Davenport.

The crash resulted in the death of an unborn baby.

On Friday, Sheriff Grady Judd made a plea to the public in hopes of finding the suspect. By Saturday, he was in custody.

“Not only is Mr. Cervin-Gomez here illegally, he caused a crash that ultimately took the life of an unborn child," Judd said in a statement, adding that the suspect was in hiding "like a coward."

The Polk County Sheriff's Office has notified the Department of Homeland Security of his arrest, and said an ICE hold has been requested.
