Fatal Michigan Crash: Illegal Immigrant Accused of Killing Grandmother and Daughter


A devastating vehicle crash in Shelby Township, Michigan has claimed the lives of 88-year-old Nancy Richmond, a mother of three and grandmother of seven, and her daughter, 63-year-old Crystal Brunn, a mother of two and grandmother of five. The crash occurred on June 6 when Jose Medina-Hernandez, a 33-year-old illegal alien, rear-ended a Buick Verano driven by Richmond and Brunn.

Medina-Hernandez has been charged with two counts of a traffic violation resulting in the deaths of Richmond and Brunn. According to the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office, Medina-Hernandez was driving a box truck at the time of the crash, which also involved two additional vehicles.

Both Richmond and Brunn died on June 6 as a result of the crash. Richmond is described in her obituary as loving “sewing and quilting” and leaves behind her remaining two children, Vicki Johnson and Ronald Richmond, along with seven grandchildren. Brunn is described as loving “her time with her grandchildren” as well as “traveling and living her best life since retirement” and leaves behind her two children, Brandon Brunn and Matthew Brunn, and five grandchildren.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has placed a detainer on Medina-Hernandez, requesting custody of him if he is released from jail at any time. State Sen. Joseph Bellino (R-16) has sent a letter to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) asking her to provide information on how Medina-Hernandez was able to secure a driver’s license despite being an illegal alien.
