On December 19, 1999, Jose Luis Trapala was allegedly driving his vehicle on the wrong side of the road in Atlanta, Georgia, when he hit another vehicle. This vehicle rolled, causing the passenger to be ejected. The vehicle then landed on the passenger, killing her. Trapala, who may have been injured in the accident, attempted to flee the scene in his vehicle, but it was inoperable. Trapala then fled the scene on foot. After being charged locally with vehicular homicide, a federal arrest warrant was issued on December 27, 1999, charging Trapala with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
The FBI is offering a reward for information leading directly to the arrest of Jose Luis Trapala.
