Dimas Damian Vela Arrest Reveals: The arrest of Dimas Damian Vela, 24, ended a web of luck and carelessness in southwest Bexar County. A hit-and-run accident led to his arrest.
Vela’s world was shattered on September 27 at I-35 and Benton City Road. While driving a Jeep, he was unaware of being near 43-year-old Casey Musser, whose life had suddenly ended.
The impact was chaotic. After driving for a mile, Vela had another accident. He called his family as a last-ditch effort to escape the mess he was in.
Sheriff Salazar said Vela’s actions may not have been intentional. Instead, it seemed like careless driving, a small error with significant consequences.
When an off-duty Poteet police officer discovered Musser’s body on the roadside at 7:30 a.m., it was evident what had occurred. Upon hearing, authorities initiated a thorough probe.
At the crash site, there were broken pieces that resembled a shattered story. A headlight piece and car antenna were sad reminders of the tragedy.
When each piece of information was examined, the picture became more apparent. The case took a turn when the Jeep. Upon closer inspection, they found that the car damage matched the crime scene tracks.
Dimas is Damian, a boy. Vela was the final piece that fit. When Vela worried about his fate, he confessed to the second crash but stayed silent about the first.
As justice began, it was clear Vela would be imprisoned in Bexar County Jail.
