Police in Pennsylvania have arrested the driver wanted for a hit-and-run crash early Sunday that killed a New York City couple and their premature baby.

Julio Acevedo, 44, was arrested as he left a convenience store in Bethlehem, Pa., just after 5 p.m. Wednesday, the New York Daily News reported. The paper was there for the arrest, carried out by New York police, and has photos.

He had been sought since the crash in Brooklyn that killed Nachman Glauber and Raizel Glauber, who was seven months pregnant. The 21-year-old Hasidic Jewish couple died at the hospital soon after the wreck. The baby boy was delivered by C-section but died Monday.

Police say Acevedo's BMW was going an estimated 60 mph when he ran a red light and plowed into the taxi carrying the Glaubers to the hospital.

Acevedo, who has an extensive criminal record, told the Daily News on Tuesday that he fled the accident scene because someone was shooting at him.

"My heart goes out to all of those people that's feeling like I'm so much of a bad guy and I'm really not," he said in the interview. "The cab driver came out of nowhere and I couldn't stop."
