Two Men Indicted on Manslaughter Charges Following Death of Four-Year-Old

by Patrick Herron

On the evening of Thursday, October 21, 2021, Montgomery County Fire Rescue personnel responded to the intersection of Georgia Avenue at Dexter Avenue for the report of a three-vehicle collision.

A black 2005 Acura RSX and a silver 2021 Honda Civic were traveling southbound on Georgia Avenue, approaching Dexter Avenue. The driver of a black 2020 Ford Fusion attempted to make a left turn from northbound Georgia Avenue to Dexter Avenue when it was struck by both the Acura and the Honda. The Acura then left the roadway and struck a brick wall. The Honda and Ford remained on the roadway.

Court documents state that Hernandez, the driver of the Acura, and Posadas, the driver of the Honda, engaged in an impromptu road race when they collided with the Ford at high rates of speed. Iliana Hernandez, the daughter of Felipe Hernandez, was in the back seat of the Acura. She was transported to an area hospital, where she later died.

Following the indictment, Hernandez turned himself in at the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit, where he was released on a $10,000 unsecured personal bond.

Posadas is currently in custody in Illinois on unrelated charges and a detainer is on file for the charges committed in Montgomery County.

The driver of the Ford Fusion has been issued three citations for driving under the influence of alcohol.
