It appears things are getting worse for Mets pitcher Ambiorix Burgos.  On September 8th, Burgos was arrested in New York when he allegedly beat his girlfriend in a hotel room near Shea Stadium.  Now Burgos has allegedly been involved in a fatal hit and run.

Police in the Domincan Republic are looking for Burgos after his Hummer slammed into two women in in Nagua, DR.  Both women were taken to the hospital where they died.  The only facts in the case at this point is the Hummer in question was registered to Burgos.  Numerous eyewitnesses have stated they saw him behind the wheel.

While it is not known if Burgos was the man behind the wheel when these two women were struck, the Mets have released a statement.

We are extremely disturbed by the reports regarding the player’s potential involvement in the hit-and-run accident that unfortunately killed two women in the Dominican Republic.  We take this matter very seriously and have begun an internal investigation to ascertain the facts.

It’ll be interesting to see how this unfolds, but our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victim.
