New York Mets pitcher Ambiorix Burgos was driving an SUV when it slammed into two women who later died of their injuries, police said.
Police Col. Eulogio Taveras said Josefina Minaya Martinez, 38, and Angely Fana, 29, were struck Tuesday evening by a new Hummer registered to the 24-year-old reliever in his Caribbean homeland. The women died at a hospital in Nagua, a town 112 miles north of the capital, Santo Domingo.
Seems like a safe bet we've seen the last of him, regardless of the outcome of the investigation. Between his shoulder surgery and the domestic violence charge from his girlfriend, his future with the Mets looked tenuous at best.
